The seventh season of “Wisconsin Life” on PBS Wisconsin offers plenty to get excited about. Host Angela Fitzgerald connects viewers with people whose passions, experiences and expertise celebrate the best of Wisconsin, introducing new stories from every corner of the state—including this one.

Chetek resident and barber Harry Bossany is featured in an all-new episode of “Wisconsin Life” at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 26, on PBS Wisconsin.

Bossany has been a barber in Chetek for close to 60 years. Known for his knowledge of the town and quick wit, he has made a lasting impact on the community and his customers.

“He knows everybody. He knows everything about the town,” says longtime customer Alan Knowlton.

This season sees Fitzgerald crossing the state to visit places, including the Shalom Wildlife Zoo in West Bend, the Marshfield Agricultural Research Station in Stratford and the Motorama Auto Museum in Aniwa. The rest of the “Wisconsin Life” team is just as well traveled; as always, the program finds and introduces unique and inspiring Wisconsinites from all parts of the state and all walks of life.
