Jodi Leong Leaving KITV for University of Hawaii Job

After more than 20 years in the television business, anchor Jodi Leong is leaving KITV to join the University of Hawaii as director of communications.

Leong began her career as a producer, reporter and weekend anchor for the Honolulu ABC-affiliate in 1991. She rejoined the station in 2006 after six years at rival KNHL, the NBC-affiliate in Honolulu, where she was weeknight co-anchor.

“Jodi Leong’s long career in broadcast journalism and strong professional connections to members of the news media in Hawaii will be of great value to our reach and effectiveness,” University of Hawaii associate vice president Lynne Waters said in a statement.

Leong’s first day at her new job will be March 15.
