A new live broadcast is coming to KHON's morning lineup next Monday with a different approach to news. Take2, a one-hour show airing at 8 a.m., will replace Living 808, which moves to a new 4 p.m. timeslot starting Sept. 18.
What's new? The show will bring a new look, for one. But more than that, Take2 will deliver expanded coverage of top stories in Hawaii. "This is still primarily a news show, but a lighter version," says producer and editor Kerry Yoshida. "We’ll take the stories that will affect our viewers most, and do a deep dive into the story. If that calls for a specialist or an expert to come in for an interview, we’ll make it happen. It’ll be much more comprehensive than a headline."
Hosting Take2 will be KHON’s high-energy personalities, news anchor Kristine Uyeno and weather anchor Kelly Simek. The duo currently anchor KHON’s Wake Up 2 Day newscast.
Look for Take2 beginning 8 a.m. next Monday!
