History/programming

The network's original station, KHPR, signed on the air in Honolulu on November 13, 1981. It originally operated with a staff of two people—general manager Cliff Eblen and music director Bob Miller. Originally operating from rented space at the University of Hawaii, it moved to its current studios in 1987. A year later, HPR became a true statewide network with the sign-on of a station in Maui.

HPR's programming choice increased in 1989, when KIPO signed on with a news and information format. However, the two stations simulcast Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Weekend Edition.

Famous quotes containing the words programming and/or history:

    If there is a price to pay for the privilege of spending the early years of child rearing in the driver’s seat, it is our reluctance, our inability, to tolerate being demoted to the backseat. Spurred by our success in programming our children during the preschool years, we may find it difficult to forgo in later states the level of control that once afforded us so much satisfaction.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    The history of medicine is the history of the unusual.
    Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Prof. Gerald Deemer (Leo G. Carroll)
