Fred Rogers

Geburtstag: 20. März 1928
Todesdatum: 27. Februar 2003

Fred McFeely Rogers

war ein amerikanischer Fernsehmoderator, Musiker, Puppenspieler und Produzent. Bekannt wurde er vor allem als Hauptdarsteller und Autor der Kinderserie Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

Am 1. Mai 1969 musste Fred Rogers vor dem Senat aussagen, um die Finanzierung seiner Serie zu sichern. Senator John O. Pastore wurde davon überzeugt, 20 Millionen US-Dollar für den Public Broadcasting Service und öffentliche Medien bereitzustellen, indem Rogers erzählte, was er mit der Serie erreichen wollte und ein Lied vortrug. Pastore, der die Sendung nie gesehen hatte, war von den Ausführungen so überwältigt, dass er nach eigenen Angaben Gänsehaut bekam. Die Rede von Fred Rogers gilt als einer der ikonischsten Momente in der Geschichte öffentlicher Medien.

„Well, what is essential about you? And who are those who have helped you become the person that you are? Anyone who has ever graduated from a college, anyone who has ever been able to sustain a good work, has had at least one person and often many who have believed in him or her. We just don't get to be competent human beings without a lot of different investments from others.“
