Meet our 2020 Team
Michael SmilingAloha Vulcans! I'm Michael "Mike" Taylor, the current General Manager for KUHH 101.1 FM University Radio Hilo (URH). I'm a Political Science and Administration of Justice dual major, entering my Senior Year in the Fall '20 semester I grew up around a father, who's also a Mike Taylor, who was a DJ for various Oahu clubs in the '80s and worked for multiple local radio stations before settling down and starting a family. As a result, I've taken after my dad and have an absolute love for music and broadcasting. My goals for URH are to incorporate more student voice and opinion on air. I hope to get more students excited, not only about the music they love to share, but also the broadcasting and story telling that radio provides. I hope we get to hear some of your voices on air soon!
Aloha! My name Isaac Timmons (@Dr.Timmons on IG). I am a Senior at UH Hilo Majoring in Psychology. I recently took on the role of News Coordinator here at URH. I have always had a passion for music, especially hip hop, and hope to implement my knowledge into a radio show at URH that showcases the bountiful amount of local talent that Hilo has to offer.
Aloha! My name is Eseta Livai (Eseta Livai on Facebook). I am a junior here at the UH Hilo Majoring in Communication, working towards my Bachelors while also planning to get my certificate in Education. If you’re ever looking, you can find me at my new job position as the promotions coordinator for URH. I’ve always had a talent for making things more fun and entertaining, so what better way to demonstrate it than here at the URH’s radio station."

I am the program coordinator here at URH where I help hire and train DJs/talk show hosts and also work to improve the variety of music in our catalogue. I also aim to promote local talent in Hilo.
