KPRP is a radio station located in Honolulu, Hawaii. Although owned by SummitMedia, LLC, the station is operated by Pinoy Power Media and offers a Fillipino language format, broadcasting at 650 kHz. It is also featured on Oceanic Time Warner Cable digital channel 849 for the entire state of Hawaii.[1]

History[edit]

Prior to its switch to Filipino programming, the station was known as KORL then KRTR and had offered a succession of formats, like Top 40, News/Talk radio, MOR, and Beautiful Music during its tenure. In 2010, KRTR added the nighttime program "Delilah" to its schedule after it was dropped by Adult Contemporary KUMU-FM.

On October 4, 2013, Pinoy Power Media under agreement with SummitMedia, LLC is now broadcasting Fillipino programming as "Pinoy Power KPRP AM 650". The callsign was changed that same day to KPRP despite the government shutdown.
