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.
