Since 1995 Jim Yager Media has partnered with Union Bank and California public television stations to produce over 600 short profiles about the unsung heroes in communities from San Francisco to San Diego. These very special individuals toil behind-the-scenes in the arts, public advocacy, education, and business to meet the unique challenges of today’s society and create better lives for all of us.
The Local Heroes project has received numerous accolades and awards over the years, including a recent Emmy Award nomination. Below are a few of our recent favorites. For more Local Heroes profiles, check out our Jim Yager Media YouTube channel.
