    As much as I love Leslie, I think she's fine where she is and doing good things for PBS. That and she's not going to bring in the up and coming younger viewers who would rather get their news from the internet.

    There's a chance with Keahi, who is a good looking guy that has a brain and can report from the field if needed. That's why I suggested Maria, because she's been working on the mainland and been gaining a lot of experience and could probably pull off the transition from weather to news now. She couldn't have done that before when she was at KHNL.

    As for not wanting another Joe Moore, that wasn't my point to having Keahi solo anchor. I'm just saying he's a capable guy that viewers wouldn't have any problem watching if he's doing the solo anchor gig.

    Anyway, that's my KGMB bumper sticker that i have in mind. Tucker/Quiban 2008!

    I think the names you suggest from the other stations wouldnt work at least immediately because I think you have to be off local television for 6 months or more because of that competitive clause agreement.

    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??

    Whoever takes Kim's place will have some big shoes to fill.

    I always hoped Jade Moon would come back. I miss her.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    Why watch a news story on a computer monitor when I can see it just by turning on the tv

    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.

    I was referring to someone from the other local stations heading over to Channel 9. Has Maria ever anchored before? I don't want to speak for her but she seems to be happy being in LA.

    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.

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

    Thanks, oggboy. Like I said earlier, Leslie is really the only woman with the numbers to replace Kim. Maria Quiban would be more like a “rebuilding mode” choice. 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.

    I saw her doing a weather report segment on a San Diego news station a few years ago. You could still hear a slight local sista accent like Liz Chun has. This accent is probably gone by now.

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

    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.

    Maybe Kalihiboy has this somewhere. . . just before Kim became KGMB's weather anchor, she was in a bank commercial, think it was American Savings, as part of a couple with dreams and aspirations of buying a house.

    A common myth was how a majority of the TV audience thought Kim was a local girl, even though she was from Texas, and if I recall, went to UT around the same time as former KGMBer Dave Carlin

    I think Kim is from Arizona but went to school (college) or worked in Texas.

    I have her doing the weather at Channel 9, she goes back to the days when Bob Jones and Jade Moon where anchoring together.

    Probably have that ad tvguy mentions, but would have no idea where it is at the moment. I seem to recall seeing it before.

    Isnt Maria 40 by now? Still young for sure. I still think the good pay in LA trumps any ideas of coming back here. Maybe I'll ask her about coming back here sometime along.

    Teri Okita is working for CBS, which is probably a dream job for most anchors in the business to work for the national network.

    So what were your impressions of the video I posted? Anyway, Ku‘ualoha Taylor was KGMB9’s weather anchor until she moved to the San Diego market in 2001, and was replaced by Guy Hagi. She shares a similar résumé to Maria (though Quiban has done some acting) and would also transition from weather to news.

    Both Ku`ualoha and Maria auditioned with me many times prior to Maria's move and also prior to Ku`ualoha's local weathercaster contract. They were often competitors for the same role! I can't tell you how often each landed an acting part 'cuz my tutu brain can't remember!

    Cindy Paralicio might be a possibility. I know the spelling of her name is wrong because I can't do a search.

    Lisa Kubota could be a possible replacement. She has been a fill-in anchor for Kim on several occasions. But I don't know if her and Keahi would work well anchoring together.

    Maria's onair career started in 1995. Kuu some years after that. That's all I meant. That and LA is a much bigger market than SD.

    And AJ, Maria is in her mid-30's. The only reason I know this is because she, Keahi and I are all the same age, give or take a year I believe. Shawn Ching might be almost 40 though.
