PBS Hawai‘i to host live televised discussion with Honolulu mayoral candidates
HONOLULU – Voters are invited to watch PBS Hawai‘i on Monday, August 1 at 8:00 pm for a special episode of the roundtable public affairs show Insights on PBS Hawai‘i featuring Honolulu’s leading mayoral candidates. The discussion will also be live streamed at PBSHawaii.org/insights
Host Daryl Huff will moderate this discussion with incumbent Kirk Caldwell, and challengers Peter Carlisle and Charles Djou.
Honolulu mayoral candidates Kirk Caldwell, Peter Carlisle and Charles Djou are scheduled to appear in a live televised discussion on Insights on PBS Hawai‘i, airing Monday, August 1 at 8:00 pm on PBS Hawai‘i and PBSHawaii.org.
Insights on PBS Hawai‘i is a regularly scheduled news interview program that normally airs Thursdays at 8:00 pm. The show’s trademark, loosely structured live format sets these discussions apart from traditional, rigid televised debates.
“These are real-time conversations in which Hawai‘i’s citizens can assess whether opponents are able to think on their feet, ask questions as well as answer them, and disagree respectfully,” said Leslie Wilcox, PBS Hawai‘i President and CEO. “In previous elections, we received feedback from viewers that Insights discussions provided some of the more telling moments of the election season.”
The program will be available to watch after the live broadcast at PBSHawaii.org/insights
