WKNO's weekly television series The Best Times is a half-hour magazine-style series featuring segments on health, finance, technology, lifestyles, and more tailored specifically for WKNO's viewers aged 50+. Produced and hosted by Cris Hardaway, The Best Times is produced in cooperation with the monthly publication, The Best Times.


Thursday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Host Cris Hardaway follows an organization on "A Trip to The Wall" that pays tribute to veterans by taking WWII veterans back to their battlefields, they take Korean War vets to the Washington D.C. memorial and they take Vietnam vets on A Trip To The Wall. The Plough Foundation's Aging Initiative survey results showed that many did not know that an Aging Commission existed. Find out about "The Aging Commission" and the services it provides. It is estimated that somewhere between 18 and 22 million Americans suffer from "Sleep Apnea." Left untreated it can lead to potentially fatal consequences. Find out more about "Sleep Apnea."



Thursday, December 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Most of us never know real hunger and the empty feeling of not knowing where the next meal is coming from. Host Cris Hardaway examines the impact of the "No Hungry Senior" program funded by The Plough Foundation. And then we ask the questions, "Do you have a will?" Find out the difference between a will and a living trust, and why should you appoint a power of attorney. These are just some of the elements of estate planning, a process that provides for the succession of your property according to your wishes. And it's not so much about the value of your property as it is about the value your property has to you and your heirs.



Thursday, December 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Host Cris Hardaway looks at "Mindfulness at Work." Mindfulness is a form of meditation that seeks to focus entirely on this moment - not yesterday or tomorrow - but now. By doing so one can lift the burdens of a stressful life. Aging is all about change. After a lifetime of moving up in the world, you might need some advice when you're thinking about "Moving Down." Downsizing might make good financial sense, but it may be difficult to leave a house that's paid for and a home that's full of memories.




The Best Times airs Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and repeats Fridays at 12:30 a.m. on WKNO/Channel 10. Produced and hosted by Cris Hardaway, The Best Times is produced in cooperation with the monthly publication, The Best Times. It is made possible by the generous financial support of our production funders: The Plough Foundation and the monthly publication of the same name, The Best Times.
