KITV Names Chuck Parker News Director

Chuck Parker has been promoted to news director at KITV in Honolulu.

A managing editor with the station since 2010, Parker has been overseeing KITV’s newsroom since the departure of news director Genie Garner in February.

“Chuck’s deep experience in Hawaii, passion for local news and expertise in multi-platform news generation make him the right choice to lead KITV4 News forward,” KITV president and general manager Andrew Jackson said, announcing the promotion.

Before joining KITV, Parker spent nine years working as an editor at the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.
