Ace is the place for ex-TV newsman Jim Wieder

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

The Chronicle’s Peter Hartlaub catches up with longtime former TV newsman Jim Wieder, whose 30 years in broadcast included a decade at ABC 7, and finds him happily running an Ace Hardware store in Hayward. (The photo from Wieder’s anchor days is from his Wikipedia page.) An excerpt:

"Going to the grocery store, people say, 'What are you doing now?' A lot of people tend to think that because you're not doing what you were doing, it's the end of the line.

"Nothing could be further from the truth. You're just doing something else."
