PBS seeks help in completing new home

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii News Now is helping another Hawaii TV station with its goal of raising profits for its new home.

Nonprofit broadcaster PBS recently broke ground on its new building on Nimitz Highway near the entrance of Sand Island. Named the Clarence T.C. Ching Campus, construction started in Nov. 2014 and is slated to finish in early 2016.

PBS Hawaii raised about $23.7 of its $30 million goal, but is still continuing to fundraise.

Hawaii News Now has granted airtime in its 10 p.m. newscast on Tuesday, Jan. 13. PBS Hawaii will use three, two-minute Hawaii News Now breaks on two simulcast channels to showcase its local and educational programs, and to encourage contributions for its project.

The grant time amounts to $30,000, and Hawaii News Now will also provide free airtime in subsequent weeks for PBS Hawaii public service announcements about the fundraising campaing.
