News radio or TV

Whilst I'm there I'd like to know what's happening in the rest of the world on news etc and I didn't find that last time on the local TV at my hotel so I may bring a little radio if there's a channel that covers topical things. Has anyone any experience on that plse?

Something weird happened at your last hotel. Every hotel in Hawaii I've been in gets CNN and the evening news on ABC, NBC, and CBS on TV.

Jet, is that on the TV or the radio? The reason I like a radio is that I can plug into my ears and listen in the middle of the night till I go back to sleep - it's quite soporific. For example here I can hear the BBC programs and quite a few local Australian radio stations on world issues. Do you have that sort of thing there?

Aloha,

TV.

For radio, check out the talk radio stations on the AM signals. I don't know offhand which station would be the most boring.

Maybe one of the local radio stations that have NPR programming could have BBC programs here at home they are usually on in the wee hours of the night.

I do think the Royal Grove has some cable TV but it is limited we mostly just watch the local news stations while there.
