Many people think of KIKU as “the Japanese station”. We are proud of that image because it reflects our lifetime dedication of bringing Japanese programming to Hawaii.

But we are also proud to be a Filipino station. In case you didn’t know, we broadcast news from the Philippines twice a day every Monday through Friday. We also air America’s first and only daily talk show for and about Filipinos — Kababayan Today — at 3:30pm Monday through Friday. And we have a great line-up of Filipino news and dramas on Sunday afternoons.

So the recent typhoon in The Philippines hit especially close to home because it affects so many of our viewers and friends.

Hawaii has always shown its generosity to victims of disasters around the world, and the people of the Philippines need our support now. If you can, please donate to the relief efforts in The Philippines. Every little bit helps. These are just a few of the many organizations that are accepting donations.
