On April 11, 2014, the Chairman of Akakūʻs Board of Directors, Gene Zarro, sat down with Governor Neil Abercrombie for a quick chat. Abercrombie discussed everything from his transition to Hawaii, his early days in Hawaii politics, and the future of Hawaiiʻs keiki.
"It was an honor to have Governor Abercrombie come to our Akakū studio and share some of his valuable time with the viewers of Akakū. I believe it speaks to the high regard our Governor has for the community access TV stations in Hawaii," said Zarro.
The half-hour long interview will re-air on Channel 55 over the next few days. Also, find it on our Vimeo page using this link, Talk story with Governor AbercrombieUpcoming Air Dates on Channel 55

We are thrilled that they see the value of our innovative youth program, and this funding will enable us to expand and reach more youth.”
The YBEAM program was developed with a grant from ZeroDivide out of San Francisco via a federal BTOP (Broadband Technology Opportunity Program) grant in 2011. YBEAM teaches youth how to produce short community stories using broadband technology in an all ‘mobile’ environment. Participants shoot, edit and distribute their content using Apple iPod Touches.
