Producer Biography

 
Hebard Olsen

Hebard Olsen

Hebard Olsen is a long time amp producer and a retired high school science teacher.  After teaching Physics, Physical Science,  Earth Science, Mathematics and Computer Programming for more than 20 years he retired from Seaside High School in 2000 and started producing independent programs for broadcast on amp.  Olsen estimates he has broadcast  more than 3,880 hours of content during his seventeen year association with amp.  

His passion is using creative methods to document community events that other local media don't cover. In a recent Monterey County Weekly interview Olsen stated: "There was a shortage of local content. I wanted to see more local issues like water, police, local speakers. I’m filling in a gap so you can know what’s going on in your community. If I video [an event] and hand it to amp, it will be played. It won’t be judged."

Strongly independent minded, Olsen currently produces four shows for amp:  "Advocacy Groups for Social Change","Green Party of Monterey County", "Central Coast Happenings", and "Arts History Literature Music". 

He requests that community members use the form below to reach him if they have suggestions for events in the Monterey/Salinas area that could benefit from being filmed.
