    Default Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 4

    I know there were threads in the past discussing "Hawaii TV news anchors and reporters." I just wanted to start a new one, since this topic hasn't been refreshed in such a long time.

    I noticed a few things within the last month (Dec 2010) and this month (Jan 2011) so far...

    Hawaii News Now
    -Weekend anchor/reporter Mari-Ela David quit. Because of that, Lisa Kubota is her replacement. And then Ramsay Wharton came back for Sunrise: Early Edition! =)
    -Grace Lee left for KPIX-TV in San Fran. Tannya Joaquin took her spot on Sunrise. I think that's a reasonable move for her because she used to anchor mornings on KHON2.
    -Duane Shimogawa was removed from the hawaiinewsnow.com team bio page. And don't see him on TV anymore. What happened to him???
    -With Duane gone, is Mike Cherry the only core sports anchor/reporter for the station? Seriously? Though I saw Guy Hagi and even Russell Yamanoha (formerly of KHNL) anchoring sports on several occasions. Is Russell even considering to return to sports anchoring besides doing all those Cheap Eats reports? BTW, I miss Liz Chun.
    -Veteran news reporter Teri Okita joins Keahi Tucker on the 6:00pm and 6:30pm weeknight newscasts. Do you think this will influence ratings, especially on the 6pm?
    -According to the Raycom website, Hawaii News Now is looking to fill an anchor/reporter position on the 5:00pm and 5:30pm newscasts to fill the seat vacated by Tannya. Who will be the next news anchor? Anybody returning to Hawaii TV News?

    KITV 4
    -New sports anchor on the weekends... though I think he may have been there for several months now.

    KHON2
    -KHON2 is looking to hire a traffic reporter weekday mornings (saw it on khon2.com).

    She got married and moved to the BI. See post #155.

    My newscaster interest is limited to wondering what is Joe Moore's salary.
    Now run along and play, but donít get into trouble.

    DOT spokesperson Tammi (sp?) Mori returning to Channel 2 to do traffic reports on the morning news - she left there in 2008 to work for the state.

    DOTspokesperson position won't stay empty - Dan M from KITV taking the job as soon as Mori departs:

    Does anyone know what happened to Kirk Mattews? I notice he's been missing from KHON's morning show.

    Likely on vacation, since ratings just ended and the next round doesn't start until late April. I'm sure Erika would have headlined if he were out 2.

    You can spot Joe Moore's April Fools Day joke a mile away on the KHON newscast.

    Bumped....

    Keoki Kerr jumps ship from KITV to Hawaii News Now... announcement made tonight on Hawaii News Now.


    Keoki Kerr to join Hawaii News Now

    http://t.co/aTOymRwM

    Long-time investigative reporter Keoki Kerr will be joining Hawaii News Now on Jan. 16.

    Kerr, who has worked for KITV4 for the past 21 years, brings a wealth of investigative and enterprise experience to Hawaii News Now. He has also covered politics, government and law enforcement.

    "I look forward to joining the team at Hawaii News Now and uncovering great stories with them," Kerr said. "I am thrilled at the opportunity to continuing my passion for investigative reporting."

    News Director Mark Platte said Kerr will be an invaluable addition to the staff.

    "We are ecstatic to have someone of Keoki's skills to join our talented Hawaii News Now team," Platte said. "He is the premier investigative journalist in Hawaii."
    I'm still here. Are you?

    My first thought was how that could happen with the standard non-compete clause in his contract. But Erika Engle points out that his contract had expired and not been renewed.
    Non-compete clauses usually address a period of time after the contract ends, so his contract must've expired quite some time ago.
    KITV loses; Hawaii News Now wins.

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

    KITV also lost Denby Fawcett and Darryl Huff.

    In my humble opinion, Huff was a huge loss for KITV.




    Now Kerr.

    Joe Moore can't do his April Fool's Day joke today on the newscast.

    It's been briefly discussed under the Cecilio Rodrigues thread, but does anyone know more about the circumstances of Taizo Braden's departure from Hawaii News Now?

    Looks like Hawaii News Now is looking for a weekend weather anchor and Sunrise reporter. Is Malika Dudley leaving soon? hmm...

    I think Sherrie Shima is a meteorologist.

    Yes, she is. But I thought I heard before that she's not living in Hawaii anymore ever since been laid off from the KGMB/KHNL/KFVE merger. Not sure.

    Yes she is changing careers. Read the current edition of the Midweek. She is expecting her first child and also going to concentrate more on her jewelry business.

    That's a little shock because didn't she just get her meteorology degree? Though, I wish her well on her future endeavor(s).

    Watched Taizo on KHON last week and if anyone from KHON is reading this, I would kindly suggest they change the way he is framed on camera.


    I can easily see his stomach and how his shirt is tucked into his pants....the angle of the shot is just not doing him any favors.


    I love Taizo, btw. Great score for KHON!

    Brooks Baehr has left Hawaii News Now and will be assignment editor in Chuck Parker's newsroom at KITV. Good for both . . .

    Red face Re: Hawaii TV News Anchors and Reporters - Book 4

    I often listen to the TV news rather than watch it. I sheepishly admitted recently that until actually watching the weather report on KITV, I didn't know Cam Tran was a name and not a technology. Her Twitter handle, cited on air (@CamTranLive) didn't help. I figured it was next-generation Doppler or something.

    Looking to learn more, I found her 'welcome to WMTW' feature at an ABC affiliate in Maine in 2009. Before that, Abilene and Austin TX.

    http://www.wmtw.com/-/8792672/923981...z/-/index.html

    I guess she's coming in as Moanike'ala Nabarro starts to do features. I also see Yasmin Dar doing more news (versus traffic or 'Social Wire'). Looks like a lot of opportunities (?) to do different things more quickly over there!
