Anchor Shawn Ching Returns to TV News, Joining Honolulu’s Hawaii News Now

Shawn Ching is returning to TV news.  The former KITV anchor and sports director is leaving his second career as a lawyer to join Honolulu’s Hawaii News Now.

“Shawn has a storied broadcast career that spans two decades,” Hawaii News Now, a shared news operation of KGMB, KFVE, and KHNL, said in announcing the move. “Having Shawn join Hawaii News Now is a game-changing moment for us.”

Ching spent 13 years at Honolulu ABC-affiliate KITV, where he anchored the station’s 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts and also served as sports director.

After receiving his law degree, Ching became an attorney for Kobayashi, Sugita & Goda before joining King, Nakamura & Chun-Hoon, where he specialized in labor law and commercial litigation.

Ching will co-anchor Hawaii News Now’s 5 and 5:30 p.m. newscasts with Stephanie Lum.
