C-SPAN's 50 Capitals Tour Comes to Hawai?i


Hawai?i is the current stop on the national network’s U.S. bus tour.

As part of its 50 Capitals Tour, C-SPAN (a Washington D-C based public affairs network) partnered with cable provider Spectrum to bring the broadcaster’s 45-foot bus to the islands.

The tour coincides with the network’s 25th anniversary, and started last year.

The bus arrived yesterday in Honolulu, making stops at the state capital, Damien Memorial School and the Boys and Girls Club’s Spaulding Clubhouse.

During its time here, representatives with C-SPAN will host events to engage with residents, students and elected officials.

Rachel Katz is with C-SPAN.

Katz says the bus will also be traveling to Maui next week – before returning to O?ahu. The bus will then be shipped to San Diego to make its next stops in the Midwest and Northeast.

Casey Harlow was an HPR reporter and occasionally filled in as local host of Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
