Gladys Hartson - News Editor

Talofa lava, for the past 15 years, I've had the privilege to work in Pacific Island media. Working as a reporter for Pacific Radio News has given me the chance to meet and speak with our Pasifika communities across the country and Pacific region.  Everyone has a special story to share, and I am always mindful not to take that for granted.
