Island Issues with Sherry Bracken debuted on December 5, 2004, with an interview with then (and now) Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim. Since then, I have posted more than 700 in-depth discussions with politicians, scientists, ordinary citizens, musicians, and more. The interviews have aired on LAVA 105.3 fm and on KKOA 107.7 fm on the Big Island of Hawaii, and then have been posted online. With my departure from Mahalo Broadcasting at the end of February, 2019, Island Issues says aloha. I’m grateful for the terrific opportunities provided by the team at Mahalo Broadcasting (Mahalo Multi-Media) to host these programs, and bring interesting information to our listeners. The program has also provided input for news stories for our statewide Hawaii Public Radio (which I’m still doing). I’m taking a short break before moving on to other new adventures. Mahalo and aloha nui loa! It’s been great.
