NEW RADIO STATION MANAGER ARRIVES

Fred W. Eilers, chief engineer during the past eight years at station KYA, San Francisco, arrived in Hilo last week, with Mrs. Eilers and Winfield S. Hancock, to take charge of Hilo’s new radio station, KHBC.

The new station will open early next month. Mrs. Eilers will direct the programs. Mr. Hancock will be program announcer and will write the continuities. Additional personnel will be picked from local talent.

Ambitious local aspirants who wish to become radio stars will have the opportunity to demonstrate their ability by reporting to the studio on Kalanianaole Drive.
