It would take awhile for viewers to acclimate to her, despite her previous stint in the islands. You could make the same argument for Ku‘ualoha Taylor, who somehow, wasn’t mentioned in the same breath.

    Never met Kuu and am not familiar with her work, which is why I didn't mention her.

    As for why I picked Maria, she and Keahi are very similar. Both in their 30's, good looking people who did good work in large mainland markets before returning home to their roots. (This is assuming Maria comes back of course). Maria would be transitioning from weather to news, but that's exactly what Kim did in case anyone has forgotten already.

    So no, I wouldn't consider her hire a "rebuilding" move. Leslie Wilcox is a legend and would of course bring in many viewers, but of a certain age group I think. And please note that no one is a bigger fan of Leslie than I. She stuck up for me while I was working at KHON and I will always love her for that.

    However, the key is to hold old viewers and bring in new ones and I think the Tucker/Quiban mix would do that best. I guess Tucker/Taylor would do well too but Maria has more experience so I would go with her.

    Probably? Did you not click the link? The video is from last week Wednesday.

    Aj
    Isn't Maria Quiban "too hot for tv news?" Malika Dudley would make a hurricane striking Hawaii sound sexy.

    So wait, who's banned from ht? Did I miss something recently?

    And as to marias anchor experience, she has just as much as kim did. Remember, gennaula was a weather girl turned news anchor too.

    Hmmm... I didn’t want to take this off topic, but since our resident “online media advocate” has been banned from HT for sometime, I’ll make his argument for him. How many of today’s generation do you see glued to the t.v. as opposed to the computer screen?

    you can never beat video and sound when it comes to a truly compelling, or tragic story.
    ...all of which you can find online. It’s called youtube. The phenomenom has forced t.v. news station from the mid-markets on up to make clips of their stories (or even entire newscasts) available online.

    That’s easy. If you want to catch it on t.v., you must be near a set at exactly 5pm (or 6pm, 10pm, etc.) In contrast, you can watch an online video 24/7. Heck, if you have Clearwire, you can watch it in the Safeway® restroom.

    If the online news people download their video to that tiny, screen on the computer monitor, in my humble, uneducated opinion I think it still applies.

    I don't think tv news is in danger of becoming extinct, especially due to online news.

    People are lazy and would rather watch something on tv than read it on a computer screen.

    That's just my .02

    Plus you can never beat video and sound when it comes to a truly compelling, or tragic story.

    Imagine the Sept. 11th attacks being reported only online.

    Wouldnt Maria be taking a big cut in pay by moving from the 2nd market to the what 87th market?? I'm sure even the meteorologists make more in LA than they do here??

    Aj
    Ahh, but Maria isn't on local tv, therefore she has no noncompete clause for honolulu. Her noncompete would only affect her if she tried to work for another Los Angeles tv station.

    As for pay, there are lots of anchors who would jump down from a big market to a medium market for the chance to be a main anchor instead of say a weekend anchor or meteorogist position. That said, I have no idea how much money she's making up there or whether KGMB could match it.

    As for my wishful thinking of getting the younger audience away from online news, yeah, I guess it is wishful thinking. Gotta try something though. I read a study once that stated that once the last baby boomer dies that will be the end of print news readers. I suspect a similar fate for tv news audiences as well.

    I gotta say that losing Kim is a HUGE hit for Kgmb.

    Being that her contract was up and I'm assuming she was in re-negotiation talks, I wonder how hard it was for her to get what she wanted....especially with the economic downturn?

    Just thinking out loud. Either way, I'm happy for Kim and for her family.

    God first, family second.

    sin, I think you are overly optimistic that the younger viewers could be weaned from their Internet preference for any local affiliate news station. The anti-MSM movement is simply too ingrained in them. They’ll rely on the local station websites, on a casual basis, if anything.

    Which is why Leslie would be the most prudent choice. However...

    As do I. And the same qualifier I gave Grace applies even more prominently to Jade. However, she also has a young son and I won’t go into the issues, but knowing Jade personally, I can tell you it’s a big deal.
