The Daytripper’s Chet Garner speaking at Tarleton State University in February. And you’re invited.

Chet Garner

The public is invited to the Clyde H. Wells Fine Arts Center on the campus of Tarleton State University for a lecture by television host and writer Chet Garner.

Garner is the creator, host and executive producer of The Daytripper, a 12-time Emmy-award-winning Texas travel show airing on PBS stations across the country.

Garner will speak at the free event at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27, with a reception to follow.

Born in nearby Comanche, Garner’s love for storytelling began at a young age around the Boy Scout campfire and toting around his grandfather’s VHS video camera.

Garner earned a degree in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin and went on to graduate first in his class from Baylor Law School.

After practicing law for three years, he decided to follow his passion to inspire folks to appreciate the beauty, history and food of the Lone Star State.

During the lecture, Garner will share stories about travel, filmmaking, marketing and doing what it takes to start a successful TV show.
