Question: Whatever happened to Danielle Tucker?
Radios Tucker wins
award for new show
Answer: Danielle Tucker, best known for co-hosting a morning show with Michael Qseng on KQMQ during the 1980s, has been doing morning news stints on radio stations KRTR-FM and KGMZ.
For more than a year, she's been hosting a Saturday morning golf show on KUMU-AM/FM. For that work, Tucker won the Best Talk Radio award last month at the Iolani Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting in Radio and Television.
Tucker worked at KQMQ from 1977 to 1991, but was terminated because of cocaine use. She entered a 12-week program and says she is now fully recovered.
She went on to work at KIKI-FM with Rory Wild for more than two years, then left in August 1994 to become a substitute teacher at Kahuku High and Intermediate School and to spend more time with her son, Cain.
After Cain graduated from high school and joined the Army, Tucker returned to her radio career.
"I'm really excited about the prospect of finding a full-time job and doing radio again," she said.
In addition to her radio stints, Tucker gives computer lessons to senior citizens at the Kuwili Technology Center.
