Chapel - Chet Garner

Chet Garner is the creator, host, and executive producer of The Daytripper, a 11-time Emmy-award-winning Texas travel show airing on PBS stations across the country. 

Born in Comanche and raised in Port Neches, Texas, Chet’s love for storytelling began at a young age around the Boy Scout campfire and toting around his grandfather’s VHS video camera around his backyard while staging elaborate productions.

Chet earned a degree in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas at Austin and went on to graduate first in his class from Baylor Law School.  However, after practicing law for 3 years, he decided to follow his passions and simultaneously inspire folks to appreciate the beauty, history, and food of the Lone Star State.

What followed was a crash course in travel, filmmaking, marketing, and doing whatever it takes to start a successful TV show.  When not traveling Chet is at home in Georgetown, Texas with his wife and 5 children (12, 10, 8, 5, and 1) – although he’s usually got them on the road too.
