HPR Board Members

HPR Board of Directors

The Hawaiʻi Public Radio Board of Directors is the entity which is legally responsible for the governance of HPR as a nonprofit corporation. It also holds the FCC broadcast licenses for the radio stations operating as HPR. The operation and organization of the Board is outlined in the Hawaiʻi Public Radio Bylaws.

The Board members are selected for their commitment to the mission and goals of HPR, and for their expertise in various fields. The individual Directors serve as volunteers and meet approximately six times per year at the HPR studio complex at 738 Kāheka Street in Honolulu. Additionally, Board Committees meet regularly throughout the year. All Board and Board Committee meetings are open to the public. The calendar for full HPR Board meetings can be found below.
