Who is Bill Kurtis?

With all the talk recently about the lawsuit involving Friendly Productions and the Little House on the Prairie Museum in Independence, Kansas, you’ve probably heard the name Bill Kurtis. With his sister, Kurtis owns the family property including the museum site. This commercial plays like everyone should instantly recognize him, but I don’t think he really has the same name recognition of say Dan Rather or Walter Cronkite. So if you are still struggling to put a face with the name, here is a YouTube link of the first in a series of commercials he’s done for AT&T wireless. The latest features Michael Phelps . Keep an eye out.
