Chris Gardner (Episode #204H)

KQED 9: Mon, Feb 9, 2009 -- 7:30 PM

It's a phenomenal story that proves truth is stranger than fiction. Chris Gardner overcame an incredibly rough childhood, wound up a homeless single father on the streets of San Francisco, yet later managed to make a killing on Wall Street and open his own highly successful brokerage. How did he do it? Josh finds out when Chris reveals some of the compelling stories from his memoir "The Pursuit of Happyness", soon to be released as a major motion picture starring Will Smith.
And Josh will wander to Glide Memorial Church - the safe haven in the heart of the Tenderloin where Chris once got a helping hand. Josh serves meals in the soup kitchen, auditions for the famous Glide choir, and has a one-on-one chat with the inspirational Rev. Cecil Williams.

Most of the work should not affect the outgoing signal, but there will need to be a cable swap […]

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
