HPR's Fall 2016 Drive Comes to an End

It’s a historic day for Hawaii Public Radio.  The Fall 2016 Pledge Drive came to an end after a 10-day campaign, with a total of $872,162 raised, and a record 922 new members added. 

We were also surprised with news that earlier today the FCC had approved the HPR-2 signal in Hilo.  As early as Wednesday, the station will be broadcasting HPR-1 at 89.1fm, and HPR-2 at 91.3fm.  This final act completes our island wide coverage of both signals.

The station would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who pledged early and during the drive, to all of the volunteers, the restaurants that donated food, and to everyone for listening.  It’s all of your support that has allowed the station to grow all of these years. 

Watch the final minutes of the drive:
