WRITTEN COMMENTS OF MAUI COUNTY COMMUNITY TELEVISION, INC. dba
AKAKU: MAUI COMMUNITY TELEVISION
BEFORE THE STATE OF HAWAII DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE AND
CONSUMER AFFAIRS
CABLE TELEVISION ADMINISTRATION
RE: OCEANIC TIME WARNER CABLE TELEVISION FRANCHISE RENEWAL
FOR KAHULUI AND LAHAINA FRANCHISES
RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED BY:
Jay April
President and CEO
SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

Maui County is singularly unique. It is the only county in the United States separated by
water. Made up of four islands, Maui County has a significant concentration of Native Hawaiian
population and some of the most rural and underserved areas in the nation when it comes to
access to broadband and television media. Akaku is Maui County's only electronic public media
resource that regularly serves hundreds of Maui non‐profits, businesses, schools, government
agencies, institutions and individuals with a high level of innovation, civic engagement and
professionalism. Maui is not Oahu and these important characteristics position Maui County as
deserving of a comprehensive cable franchise agreement that fits its needs and guarantees a
sustainable community media future for all its residents.

Jay April: Akaku, Maui’s Only TV Station

Jay April isn’t just a part of Hawaii’s media circus—he’s also a ringmaster.

As the president and CEO of Akakü: Maui Community Television (Akakü for short), he is not only a ringmaster of the local media circus, but also a ringleader when it comes to defending our First Amendment rights.

Born and raised near the intersection of Connecticut’s Pequot, Nipmuck and Mohegan rivers, April—who has called Maui home for nearly two decades now—personifies his diminutive home state’s motto: “He who is transplanted still sustains.”

It would be difficult to summarize it here, but rest assured, April’s career (and life in general) is nothing short of extraordinary.

The media maven says he started climbing the ladder as a young producer tasked with making documentaries on portable video “and begging local PBS stations to carry them.”

April’s humble beginnings eventually gave way to an esteemed career as an award-winning television producer, director, video journalist, artist—and all-around nice guy.
