In advance of the opening of the regular session of the Hawaii state Legislature, ‘Olelo Community Media will premiere its popular weekly “Live at the Legislature” show at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 14, on channel 49.
The live-stream of the weekly show will also be found at ‘OleloNet at www.olelo.org/49 and on the ‘Olelo Facebook page.
Viewers on Hawaii Island will be able to view ‘Olelo’s cablecast on community-access station Na Leo TV.
The show will air on Tuesdays at 8:30 a.m. from the state capitol until the Legislature adjourns for the year.
“Live at the Legislature” will repeat each Wednesday at 7 p.m. A wrap-up show to analyze the 2020 session will be aired in mid-May.
“Live at the Legislature,” which first launched in January 2018, will focus on the issues, legislation and topics of importance that will emerge from the 2020 session.
Each week, state senators and representatives will provide a variety of perspectives on the issues from both sides of the aisle and each chamber.
“For the past two sessions, ‘Live at the Legislature’ has provided the people of Hawaii the opportunity to better understand what our Legislature is tackling on behalf of every resident of the state,” said Sanford Inouye, president and CEO of ‘Olelo. “Thanks to Senate and House leadership, the show provides greater transparency of the Legislature’s actions, increasing the public’s understanding of the critical issues facing our communities today.”
For convenient viewing at a later date, each “Live at the Legislature” show will be available at www.youtube.com/olelocm.
‘Olelo said it is committed to airing programs of community interest on its cable channels: 49, 53, 54 and 55, as well as in high-definition on 1049 and 1053 (Hawaiian Telcom).
