Former TV reporter runs hardware store
Jim Wieder, who worked for 30 years in TV news including the last 10 at KGO, now owns an ACE Hardware store in Hayward. Does he have any regrets about changing careers? He told the Chron's Peter Hartlaub, "That's hard for some broadcasters, when they're not in the business anymore ... 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."
