Island Focus

Meet the people who drive Hawai‘i’s island community forward.

Island Focus is a bi-monthly half-hour television series produced by ‘Ōlelo Community Media as a community service. The show features exclusive interviews with members of our government, business, education, and community sectors and talk about their passions, what’s new, and what impact they’ve made.

“Focused on the personalities behind the organizations, industries, and agencies that keep Oʻahu moving, that’s Island Focus,” says host Lyla Berg. “We get to highlight the passion and influence of both the people and places that inspire, inform and impact our everyday lives.”

Island Focus premieres on ‘Ōlelo Channel 53, first and third Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm, and Sundays at 4:30pm. You can also find Island Focus on ‘Ōlelo VOD Channel 52, ‘ŌleloNet and YouTube.
