Need Help This Thanksgiving? GPB Radio Has You Covered

Being in charge of the Thanksgiving meal can be stressful. If the very thought of preparing the turkey has you reaching for the cooking wine, wait! GPB is here to help you out and offer a few laughs too.

On Thanksgiving Day November 26, we bring back our annual live cooking help show, "Turkey Confidential" from 12 pm- 2 pm hosted by "The Splendid Table’s" Lynne Rossetto Kasper.

What Does Gratitude Really Mean?

A very common question asked every year is, “What are you thankful for?” Of course we give out the generic answers like family, good health, love and so on. Do we feel this type of gratitude throughout the whole year or only on holidays that point it out?

What does gratitude really mean when we take it out of the context of a holiday? The day after Thanksgiving, we will be airing two special programs to get a better understanding of what gratitude means.

Veterans Day Specials Presented On TV And Radio

Often times when we think of Veterans Day, we think of a time to honor the men and women of the military and the many sacrifices they made. Or do we?

Most of us only get a glimpse of war through news outlets and proceed to Veterans’ Day sales. Meanwhile veterans come home having lived the brutal reality of combat and forever wear the physical, mental and emotional scars of war.

To give us a better understanding of what they have sacrificed and suffered, we are airing specials on television and radio from the veteran’s point of view.
