In cooperation with the East-West Center’s Pacific Islands Report (PIR), Hawaii Public Radio (HPR) produces daily news and special reports on Pacific Islands issues. PIR’s Assistant Editor, Edelene Osedil Uriarte from Palau, puts together the audio for the HPR.
On August 2011, Edelene released 2 audio interviews:
- Interview with Rachel Miller, who talks about the first Marshallese language and culture course at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa this fall semester, 2011. (August 16, 2011)
- Interview with Commander Jesse Wilson Jr. who talks about this year’s Pacific Partnership Mission. (August 8, 2011)
Listen to these audio pieces at the Pacific Islands Report website.
To All East-West Center Staff and Participants:
Once or twice each year, East-West Center staff and students volunteer to assist Hawaii Public Radio during their fundraising telethon. This year we’ve been asked to volunteer to staff the phones on Wednesday, April 14 (the first day of their spring fundraiser) from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in their studio on Kaheka Street (near Ala Moana Shopping Center and across from Don Quijote Store). If you’ve ever had the opportunity to participate in HPR’s telethon you already know that it’s a rewarding experience – a lot of camaraderie for a good cause. The added benefit of course is that the East-West Center receives plenty of on-air “drive time” recognition. Your participation will also allow us to mention EWC programs and upcoming activities, along with our year-long celebration of the Center’s 50th anniversary.
If you are able to join us or have any questions, please contact Floren Elman-Singh, EWC Public Information Specialist at 944-7193 or at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 9.
We look forward to having you join us.
