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.

What happens after an election, after the vitriol and deep discontent that characterized this one, how to chart a way forward is a key question.  Our panel of psychologists will consider how Americans can come together after an election that drove us apart - if healing can happen at all.

With what seems to be daily October surprises... are you feeling that our local election is getting short shrift? Our panelists Neal Milner and Colin Moore will remedy that with a look and listen to what's taking your attention, even if it's "Oh please.  let all of this be over soon!" It will be in less than a week when we meet for Town Square.

Some think he has the race all sewn up. And while Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell hopes that's true, whoever is declared Mayor on Nov 8 will still have to face the issues voters want fixed. This afternoon on Town Square an open line to Kirk Caldwell.

  If you’ve walked through Oahu’s Kaka'ako area, you know the place looks a lot different these days. Look around and you’ll see high rise and mixed use buildings under construction for a planned neighborhood, with residential units, shops and restaurants.  The identity that’s also emerging isn’t happening by accident. The Ward Village project of the Howard Hughes Corporation is leaving the sense of place to Hilo artist Sig Zane.
