It’s ‘GMO Week’ on isle public access television


‘Olelo Community Media on Oahu has gathered people from both sides of the GMO (genetically modified organisms) debate for four nights of programming that aims to delve more deeply into this often-divisive issue.

“GMO Week” debuted Monday night and continues through Thursday, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., simulcast on the Big Island on Na Leo o Hawaii public access Channel 54. The series includes pre-recorded and live shows debating the topic of GMO.

“The subject of GMOs is clearly one that many people in our community feel passionately about,” said Roy Amemiya, president and CEO of ‘Olelo. “We hope that ‘GMO Week’ will help all of us gain a better understanding of both the pros and cons of GMO so that our community can create solutions that are in the best interest of Hawaii.”

Shows regularly scheduled on Channel 54 on Na Leo, such as “Astrology with Rollin Frost” and “Aloha Chapel” will air instead on Channel 53. For a complete schedule of Big Island programming, please visit www.naleo.tv.
