Russell Subiono has been the Pledge and Listener Experience Producer at Hawai‘i Public Radio since 2019. Born in Honolulu and raised on Hawaiʻi Island, he’s spent the last 10 years working in local film, TV, and radio. He got his start at HPR as a Production Assistant on The Conversation from 2016-2017. Prior to his return, he spent two years as a producer at KITV4 Island News, where he oversaw Hawai‘i’s only hour-long evening broadcast. In the moments when he’s not working on the pledge drive, you can find him visiting donut shops, making top-5 lists, and developing comedy videos that never get made.
