Long Story Short – Amy Kalili – Hawaiian-Language News Anchor

The first Hawaiian-language news segment on a network affiliate aired for the first time in March 2008 - a daily weekday feature in KGMB 9’s Sunrise show. That marked a major breakthrough in the promotion of the Hawaiian language to the entire state. Special correspondent Amy Kalili is so good on camera, she seems like a career broadcast journalist who just happens to be fluent in Hawaiian.  Not so. Amy’s journey to becoming the first Hawaiian-language news anchor was a long one, with many twists and turns along the way.
