Question: What ever happened to Linda Coble?
Reporter Coble now
directs community service
Answer: Coble was a longtime reporter and anchor at KGMB-TV before switching to KSSK and radio in 1988. In June 1998, Coble was laid off from KSSK due to downsizing. Her husband, Kirk Matthews, is weekend news anchor at KHON Fox 2.
Beginning July 1, Coble will be the district governor for the Rotary District 5000, a community service organization. In Hawaii, there are about 2,100 members and 37 clubs on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. Coble has a number of projects set up for this year. At the end of October, about 25 Hawaii Rotarians will be going to Ghana in Africa to inoculate children against polio, an epidemic viral infection.
For the upcoming election, the organization will assist with Kids Voting Hawaii. Rotary members will serve as precinct officials for election stations for youngsters from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Coble has committed herself to the organization for the next three years.
