Beth-Ann Kozlovich

Executive Producer, Talk Shows

Beth-Ann Kozlovich is Hawaii Public Radio’s Talk Shows Executive Producer and oversees HPR’s five locally-produced talk programs. She created and co-hosts HPR2’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 Hawaii 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.

  If your eyes glaze over trying to deal with your own budget, imagine the jobs of the State Director of Finance Wes Machida and the Acting State Auditor Jan Yamane. We'll take up the health of the budget, and the intersection of money and policy...that can often bring more than a few eye rolls.
