Phyllis Kihara
KIKU TV General Manager

As you’ve probably already heard, on June 28, KIKU will stop airing Japanese and Filipino programming and become ShopHQ.

It has been our privilege to bring Japanese and Filipino programming to the people of Hawai‘i for the past four decades.

Change is difficult and the loss of Japanese programming and our local segments is hard to accept. But if there is a silver lining to the change, it is the opportunity we’ve been given to connect with so many loyal KIKU viewers who have reached out to let us know how much they love the station.

 We have been overwhelmed with the calls, emails and messages we’ve received, not just expressing sadness at the loss of our programming, but also expressing concern for our staff’s future. These have brought tears to our eyes.

On behalf of the entire staff, thank you and aloha.
