Less than $15.5k remains in station’s fundraising for East Hawai‘i transmitter campaign 
Hawai‘i Public Radio’s fall fund drive finished in dramatic style at 7:45 a.m. on Thursday, October 16. The drive had been suspended at the end of the previous Friday, the tenth and presumed final day of the drive, with a shortfall of nearly $232,000 on the $1.03 million goal.
Hawaiʻi Public Radio reached the tenth day of its anticipated 10-day fund drive on Friday, October 10 without having reached its $1.03 million goal. This atypical occurrence for the 33-year-old nonprofit requires the station to return to the air on Wednesday, October 15, to seek the remaining approximately $200,000 needed to support the station’s next six months of operations.
Hawai‘i Public Radio adds to its locally developed content with the debut of a new weekday evening program, Latin Beat, hosted by radio veteran Ray Cruz.
