Howard Dashefsky Returns to KHON

howard dashefskyHonolulu Fox affiliate KHON is launching a 9 p.m. newscast with veteran anchor Howard Dashefsky this fall. The newscast will debut September 8.

“We look forward to offering Hawaii viewers a comprehensive late news option at 9 p.m. We have been wanting to add a 9 p.m. news for a while, and we think the time is right and Howard is the perfect addition to our news team,” general manager Kristina Lockwood said in a statement. “We are committed to serving the viewers of Hawaii and providing more local news content both on-air and online.”

Dashefsky left KHON in 2009. In the past five years, he has worked in communications consulting, as well as writing, producing and hosting “Sports People Hawaii” and working on-air for OC Sports.

“I‘m excited about coming back to KHON2,” Dashefsky said. “It’s certainly with some sadness that I step away from my work with OC16 and OC Sports, but I feel blessed that I‘ll still be able to do both as time permits. So it‘s really a win-win.”

Glitch Forces Some Baseball Fans to Watch ‘Bethenny’ Instead of World Series

mahalo_khonAfter being able to watch the first inning of yesterday’s game five of the World Series, some viewers of Honolulu FOX affiliate KHON were forced to watch the talk show “Bethenny” instead.

At the end of the first, the World Series signal cut out on Time Warner Cable and was replaced by the daytime talker.

“The problem was not our fault,” Kristina Lockwood, president and general manager of KHON, told the Honolulu Star Advertiser. “Apparently the Time Warner fiber connection at Queen Street was lost. Time Warner fixed it immediately.”

The game was back by the bottom of the third inning and baseball fans got to watch the Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 instead of an interview with Javon ‘Vawn’ Sims, talking about why men cheat. The Red Sox lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
