Sister of Long Time Radio Personality Frank B. Shaner Calls for Action After Contract Not Renewed With KUMU 94.7

Aloha Damon, I’m writing on behalf of my brother Frank B Shaner. He is a long time beloved radio personality in Hawaii (yes, guess I’m a little biased)..mentoring many many local musicians and artists through the years..not to mention his off the wall Hoku award winning comedy album, Adventures of Leimomi.

Frank B. Shaner

Last week his contract was not renewed at Kumu 94.7 fm Honolulu as they”move in another direction”. Now we know corporate decisions are for the most part, final and we also know bigger things are in store for Frank. BUT we are very disappointed in the way program director is handling this Aloha statement, proper farewell, transparency..nothing..chopping block mentality.  Many, many Big Islanders have tuned in to Franks show (live streaming online) during his previous 35 plus years in the business.

I appreciate and value your blog and hope you will find time to comment. I posted the following on Franks facebook page this morning:

Morning Frankie, please don’t delete this. I know you’d rather we not make waves..but yur gonna have to come Kona if u wanna give me good lickin…AINOKEA.

Ok Frankie fans..time to flood the station request line at 808-9475868 (I know..keep trying) and facebook pages, ~

Hawaii fans are NOT ignorant..corporate will not change their decision..BUT we can demand a proper, transparent, Aloha statement. We deserve AT LEAST that. Email Kumu program director at Ohana Broadcast ~
