Default Re: Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 4

I've always been skeptical about sports broadcasters becoming news anchors. Took me a long time to accept Joe Moore as such since he was the sports guy for many years on KGMB and moved over to KHON in the late 1970s to still do sports until elevated to the anchor position. One thing I have rarely seen is Joe doing field reporting of the news.

While Robert's abilities in doing hard news may be doubtful, I think he has good field experience since he has done a lot of feature sports stories. So I dunno.

When you are #3 in the ratings pile, you do anything to try to build your audience to get higher ad rates in the end. That is what it's all about. Ads.
