PEG (Public, Education, and Government) access television was a portal for information long before the topic of government transparency became trendy. For 30 years, ‘Ōlelo Community Media has been delivering local government and institutional transparency to the television sets, desktop computers, and mobile devices of O‘ahu’s community members. Check out our current programming produced in partnership with the State Legislature.
Daily Legislative Hearings & Meetings
Through a contract issued by the State of Hawai‘i, ‘Ōlelo has an equipment control room and a dedicated team of staff operating out of the heart of the State Capitol, broadcasting live legislative hearings and meetings on a daily basis. The hearings and meetings that get air time are selected by the State Clerk’s office and are also made available to view online shortly after they have aired.
A schedule of the hearings and meetings to be aired on our channels can be found at olelo.org/leg.
Live at the Legislature
Live at the Legislature is a live half-hour weekly news program that focuses on the issues, legislation, and topics of importance emerging from this year’s Legislative Session. Each week, State Senators and Representatives provide a variety of perspectives on the issues from both sides of the aisle. Tune in to Live at the Legislature on Tuesdays at 8:30 AM (LIVE) and Wednesdays at 7:00 PM on ‘Ōlelo channel 49.
