Paula Akana gives a professional presentation as a newscaster. But Robert Kekaula? He just does not seem a good fit as a newsman. I'll need to watch a few times to see if I have underestimated his newscaster abilities.

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.

I worked with Kekaula many years ago. I hope a few decades of experience has mellowed him out a little.

I recall she once said she like moving away from TV and into newspaper because she does not have not have get all dressed and dolled up. And also to show that is a real journalist. I think that's when TV news was becoming who has the pretty face. (Not that she wasn't BTW).
