Justice Ken WiseThe TXDAR Media award recognizes an individual or program whose work promotes education, historical preservation and/or patriotism. That work can be in the radio, television, film or published medium.

This year, TXDAR was pleased to present the Media Award to Justice Ken Wise for his Texas history podcast Wise About Texas.

Through more than 65 episodes, Wise discusses historic battles and famous Texans, as well as obscure trivia and quirky criminals, all of which helped define the great state of Texas.

Wise, a native Houstonian and judge on the 14th Court of Appeals, can trace his ancestry back to the founding of the Republic of Texas in 1836. Like many DAR members, his heritage inspires his passion for Texas history and is the driving force behind his podcast.

Wise’s passion for history and dedication to sharing that information is why he was selected for the 2019 TXDAR Media Award.
