L.A. Pubcaster KCET Sets Huell Howser Marathon

Hard to believe it’s been almost a year since the death of Huell Howser, the folksy chronicler of all things weird and wonderful in California.

KCET, the Los Angeles public TV station that Howser called home for more than 30 years, has set a marathon of fan-selected episodes of Howser’s “Visiting …” and “California’s Gold” series to run Jan. 5 from 7 p.m. to midnight. Additional episodes will air at 7:30 p.m. (his former time slot) Monday-Friday that week, capped on Saturday by back-to-back segs from 5-6 p.m.

Howser died Jan. 6, 2013 at age 67. His programs were part travelogue, part local history and always a study in colorful characters unique to the Golden State.

KCET’s online poll drew more than 6,o00 responses. Among the top vote-getters were Howser’s visit to Hearst Castle, his look at the In-N-Out burger empire, the story of Pink’s hot dogs, the Vincent Price Art Museum in East L.A. and the history of the “Firefall” spectacle that drew crowds at Yosemite National Park for nearly 100 years.
