Please join us for a week of special programs to celebrate the New Year. Each night from January 1-7, KIKU will air specials ranging from mysteries to the mysterious, beloved favorites to soon-to-become new favorites, and dramas featuring well-known, as well as unlikely stars.
One program you will not see is the Red and White Song Contest (Kohaku Utagassen). The pandemic altered the format of the song contest, eliminating a live audience. With a lack of details about the new format and participants, we made the heartbreaking and tough decision to forego the program in 2021.
In the Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the year of the ox. The ox is known for facing difficulties fearlessly and for its traits of endurance and determination. No matter what year you were born, these are qualities we could all benefit from in 2021.
Happy New Year to all of you and please stay healthy and safe.
