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, August 2 at 7:30 p.m.
Host Cris Hardaway continues his conversation with Wayne Dowdy, archivist at the Memphis Public Library about "The History You Do Not Know." And fittingly we'll visit the oldest active cemetery in Memphis where the past doesn't pass away so quickly at Elmwood Cemetery. It's a place where you can find "History At Rest."



Thursday, August 9 at 7:30 p.m.
Poets tell us that wisdom comes with age. Do you feel wiser? And how do you feel about getting older? The great painter Pablo Picasso said, We don't grow older, we grow riper. So as we ripen on the vines of life, here's a question for you. If you could travel back in time and meet your younger self, what advice would you give? In this episode of The Best Times we'll try to answer that question and more as we discuss "Getting Older."



Thursday, August 16 at 7:30 p.m.
Host Cris Hardaway examines the work of the Coordinated Response to Elder Abuse team in their efforts for "Battling Elder Abuse." The Memphis Coordinated Community Response team intervenes to protect older adults where there is a suspicion of physical, sexual or emotional abuse or suspicions of neglect, abandonment or financial exploitation, regardless of the setting or situation.



Thursday, August 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Host Cris Hardaway takes a look at "Women and Social Security." Because women live longer than men they need to maximize their Social Security benefits. With biking becoming the new transportation we'll look at "Boomer Bikers." Boomers make up a third of the biking population. And finally we'll take a look at "Strokes," and learn the warning signs of strokes and a tour of one of the few stroke ambulances in the country.



Thursday, August 30 at 7:30 p.m.
After 50 and into retirement people usually have time on their hands. This is the time to find something interesting to do to stay active. It's time to "Get a Hobby" and keep life interesting. And see what happens when your new hobby becomes a business when we talk with "The Map Man."
