About ‘Titans’: There was a time when Joe Albertson had his first grocery store, when mining magnate Harry Magnuson was unsure about his future. Making it big in business means taking risks and putting everything on the line. But is success about more than just making money? These Idaho titans of industry are rags-to-riches stories that some people think they know — but there is more to them than you might think.
“When I set out to make this program, I didn’t know what to expect,” says producer Aaron Kunz. “But sitting down with family members, historians, and friends of Idaho’s titans, I learned that making money was just a small part of who they are. Many of these titans had to give back to Idaho and their community; it was built into their DNA. I hope when you watch this program you’ll see these recognizable names in a whole new way.”
“Engaged communities like Wallace and energetic residents like John Magnuson are two of the reasons this new series, Idaho Experience, is so important for our state,” says producer Jeff Tucker. “Viewers seem hungry to learn about how they fit into our collective past and how they can help shape our future.”
