Thank You Akaku

Public access station celebrates community, introduces production goals.

Dan Emhoff began work at Akaku during the summer of 2004. A former elementary-school teacher in California, he came to Molokai to change his life.

Emhoff enjoys working at Akaku because he believes he is making a difference, and becoming “a part of something that is good and important.”

Emhoff sees his role as Education Director as a way to perpetuate freedom of speech.
“This is a venue where the common person can be heard throughout Maui County,” he said. “It is a tool that needs to be used to have a say in what happens around us.”
