Jul 26, 2016

Airing tonight at 7:00 pm on HPR-2, "Obama's Years - Part Two," an NPR news special hosted by Steve Inskeep.

This two-part radio documentary explores how life has changed for Americans over the last eight years. In the first hour, which aired on HPR-2 on July 19, Inskeep travels the country to places in which President Obama delivered speeches, and checks in with Americans living in those places to ask about their perspectives on the issues the president discussed. From Denver to Wichita to Philadelphia, audiences will hear people talk about their jobs, aspirations and family life. They'll discuss issues like healthcare, immigration, guns and race relations and how those issues have played into their lives in the last eight year.

Hawaiʻi Public Radio airs the second hour of this special coverage on tonight at 7pm on HPR-2. In the second hour, Steve Inskeep will sit down with President Obama at the White House and ask the president how he thinks the country has changed during his presidency. Inskeep will also talk to the President about the thoughts, ideas and lives of the people he met during the reporting for this documentary.

Regular broadcast of BBCʻs World Service will be pre-empted during these two hours.
