Rick thinks he’s all fancy, getting to go to Indianapolis or whatever. So, in his absence, I’m gonna share this little story about WHAS11′s News Director, Genie Garner, moving to Honolulu.
KITV announced that Genie Garner will join the station as its new News Director effective October.
Garner had previously worked in Hawaii from 1989-1991 as a producer for KGMB News. Since that time, Garner has held news management positions in a number of markets, including assistant News Director at KMOV-TV (CBS) in St. Louis and most recently as News Director at WHAS-TV (ABC) in Louisville, Ky.
“Coming back to Hawaii years later and renewing my connection with the local viewer is an opportunity I couldn’t pass up. There is so much growth and change for the state and the local television industry. I am looking forward to establishing a long and successful working relationship with KITV President and General Manager, Mike Rosenberg and the entire team at Island Television,” said Garner.
Rick will have more on this later.
