Beth-Ann Kozlovich

Executive Producer, Talk Shows

Beth-Ann Kozlovich is Hawaiʻi Public Radio’s Talk Shows Executive Producer and oversees HPR’s five locally-produced talk programs. She created and co-hosts HPR-2’s weekday morning show, The Conversation, launched in 2011. In 1999, she created and began moderating Town Square, HPR’s long-running live, public affairs forum. A woman with lives on radio and in the business of nonprofits, she is a former Hawaiʻi anchor of NPR's Morning Edition. Her attraction to public radio began when it was the only car-accessible, parent-approved station…so all of this really is her mother’s fault. When her three sons begin to support public radio on their own, Beth-Ann will be just as happy to take the blame.

Traditional, lecture-based methods of instruction often fail to engage learners of all ages, from young children, to college students and adults. Project-based learning has been heralded as not only a better way to impart knowledge, but also teach kids vital life skills such as teamwork and self-advocacy.

A recent downward revision of predicted revenues has left a cloud over the 2017 legislative session and the Ige Administration's proposed biennium budget. Uncertainty swirls over how the difference will be made up, what the Governor's financial priorities will be and how his administration will approach the many issues weighing on the minds of Hawaii residents. Hawaii Governor David Ige joined us to take calls and field questions from his constituents.

  Since before Honolulu's elevated rail broke ground, architect Scott Wilson has advocated for a different system. Still rail but 'at grade.' In a report released this year he re-energized that idea to transform the bloated project once it reaches town. Scott Wilson will be on the show to answer calls and questions.

Three years ago, Google hired 14% of its team members who didn't have a BA degree. Why? Because in the current innovation era, it's about what you can do with what you know, and how creatively you solve problems. Today on Town Square, we talk with Expert-in-Residence at Harvard's Innovation Lab and all around education disrupter, Tony Wagner, co-author of Most Likely to Succeed.

They'll determine what issues will mark this session and what contrast there may be between our state and a changed federal government. Neal Milner and Colin Moore join me with a preview.
