We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We can't think of a better way to end a Thanksgiving meal with the family this year than to huddle around the TV and catch a documentary on the life of the late Huell Howser, the man who taught us everything we needed to know about California.

KCET will be airing "A Golden State of Mind: The Storytelling Genius Of Huell Howser" on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. It will tell the life story of the beloved TV host of "California's Gold," who died last January at 67 from a battle with prostate cancer. We'll get to hear his friends and colleagues regale us with stories about Howser's many adventures visiting family-run businesses, offbeat landmarks and historical locations throughout the Golden State over more than 30 years. We hope we'll get to see a montage of Howser saying his famous catchphrase, "That's amazing!"

Here's the teaser for the documentary:
