    Default Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 3

    This thread starts the 3rd book of the ever so popular thread in the series.

    Previous incarnations of the thread can be found at these links:

    Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters
    Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 2

    And to make it official, the first entry is about a piece that was reported by Erika Engle in today's Buzz column.

    Darren Pai is leaving KHNL TV to take a job at Hawaiian Electric Company.

    VETERAN reporter Darren Pai is leaving KHNL-TV for a job that will put him on the other side of the reporter notebook.

    Pai has been hired as Hawaiian Electric Co. senior communications consultant, filling one of two vacancies there -- but with TV stations in ratings for the past month, he couldn't jump ship until the Nielsens were over.

    Awesome job Darren, he was always a class act.

    He'll be hard to replace at KHNL for sure.


    As for the other reporters who are still working I give them credit for doing a job that helps others.

    For those reporters who are arrogant and think they know everything, I have nothing to say to them.

    Does Marion need a spokesperson?

    From Erika's column today at this link, here's some scoops:

    "KHON-TV is moving morning news co-anchor Tannya Joaquin to its 5 p.m. newscast and has hired former KITV anchor Kathy Muneno.
    (...)
    "Joaquin will move into Wilcox former co-anchor slot alongside Ron Mizutani for the station's 5 p.m. weekday newscasts effective Monday, April 30.
    (...)
    "She will also take Wilcox's leadership role in the Lokahi Giving Project, a community service program founded by Wilcox and Mariellen Jones.
    "Muneno, currently traveling with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, will shift from sea legs to air legs at KHON as morning news co-anchor alongside Kirk Matthews, on April 30.
    (...)
    "She joined KITV in 1991 and anchored "Good Morning Hawaii" for the last four of her first nine years there. She served as a newswriter for an Ohio Fox affiliate for about a year before returning to Hawaii, and to KITV as weather anchor in 2001.
    "Muneno has volunteered for several nonprofit organizations, including the Polynesian Voyaging Society since leaving KITV in 2004."
    .
    .

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

    Good for Kathy, good for Hawaii. I think she's been exclusively hanging out with Captain Hubby long enough! Time to grace our airwaves with her wit and charm, and nose for news (remember Tyke...oh how she winced when they shot the elephant as she was doing the live remote from Kakaako!). I'm sure it will help the station to have an authority on the Polynesian Voyaging Society as well.

    Exclamation Re: Smooth As Sandpaper

    That's a splog. A spam blog. It scrapes, copies, steals posts from other blogs and websites only to have some semblance of "content" to otherwise generate Google juice, ad revenue, or disseminate malware. It's designed more for spiders than humans, thus the ten-mile long scrolling disaster. I wouldn't click the link for a multitude of reasons.

    The entry in question is here (if you must) -- but inactuality, it was taken (images and all) from an entry in Nate's "Talk Aloha" here.

    I tuned in to the Channel2 news @5pm with Tannya and Ron recently. Usually I watch KITV-4 during this time slot. My oh my! Tannya is getting prettier, so much in fact I told my spouse she must be hapai! There's a certain 'glow' about her. Maybe she doesn't know it yet...

    Fans of KGMB's Liz Chun, the "state's only female TV sports anchor," can catch her tonight at 7:30 p.m. on PBS Hawaii. She's the guest of fellow sports reporters and anchors Jim and Kanoa Leahey. Sounds like a good show for local sports and sports news junkies.

    Probably because she can sleep past 5 in the morning.

    Speaking of hapai, did I hear right that KHON is on Trini Watch?

    Wait, wait. Nobody ever followed up on what happened to Joann Shin. She was my favorite on KHNL. I thought her squeeky voice was a nice contrast to Steph Lum's booming one.

    After Rod H. got fired from DOT she was in b/t jobs. What then?

    KGMB introduced two new on-air people tonight on their weekend newscast.

    Malika Dudley, Miss Hawaii 2005, is doing weather. She's from the Big Island (daughter of a UH Hilo prof) and recent UH Manoa grad.

    Mike Cherry, said to be from Maui, is doing sports - and he says he's been at KGMB for five years as an editor, cameraman and producer.

    Both did good jobs. The station is obviously spending money.

    He replaced Steve Uyehara who, and if I heard it right, will be the anchor of the new morning show on KGMB9. Right?

    Who else will be joining Steve?

    Grace Lee, who preveiously worked as a reporter at KGMB then went to the mainland, will be Steve's co-anchor. And Jeff Booth will be doing weather in the mornings.
    No, I'm not the Larry Price, I just happen to have the same name.

    Also Ramsay Wharton (formerly of KHON2) and Howard Dicus are on the team. Ramsay will be the roaming live reporter, and Howard is also supposedly going to be in different places, and not just cooped up in an office.

    Joann actually did get hired at DOT and is still there, even though Rod Haraga was shown the door at about the same time.

    Howard = KGMB's Manolo Morales

    Regarding Grace Lee, I could swear she did a stint on Guam at KUAM doing news and a lifestyle show in the late 90s. I heard her voice from the back room a couple of weeks ago and came out to ask the dearly beloved "Is that Grace Lee?". He said it was but she looks different. Either she has had a lot of plastic surgery (still the same height, weight, hair and complexion) or it is someone who sounds exactly like her.
