Ron Mizutani Returns to Honolulu’s KHON

Former KHON reporter and anchor Ron Mizutani is returning to the Honolulu Fox affiliate, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser.

Mizutani left last year for a job in public relations. In a statement, he said reporting “has been a part of my professional life for nearly three decades and continues to be a passion.”

“It hit me hard on Dec. 17, the day Sen. Inouye died. I was overwhelmed with emotion and I felt this intense desire to tell Sen. Inouye’s life story,” Miztuani said in a statement. “It was on that day that I said to myself, ‘I tried something new and enjoyed my experience, but I’m a reporter. I need to follow my heart.’”

This is the second time Mizutani will return to the station after leaving for a public relations job. He has worked at KHON for nearly 28 years.
