Re: Aloha Tower Marketplace

Aloha Tower Marketplace was created with a huge design flaw, as many of you have pointed out: the parking.

I have always been wary of polls, especially since the media fails to follow one of the principal rules of publishing such results: who paid for the poll?



It's also quite easy to skew the...

Re: Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 4

KITV also lost Denby Fawcett and Darryl Huff.

In my humble opinion, Huff was a huge loss for KITV.

I was reading a free copy of Sunday's Staradvertiser, and was shocked at the lack of hard news.

Agreed about Katie looking uncomfortable.

As a result, I was also uncomfortable watching her news delivery.

Re: Will Couric's jump to CBS help KGMB?

My noob opinion is Katie failed because she didn't connect with her audience.

I liked her when she did the morning show...warm, easygoing and always smiling.

That smile vanished when she did...

Re: No NEWS in TV news?

Sorry but I didn't understand a word you said.

Instead of attacking the messenger, why not stick to the thread topic and address that?
