Mixed media plate of TV, newspaper and radio
KITV may again be seen around the world. It wouldn't be via its Web site being picked up by cable channels, like after the October earthquake. Rather, anyone anywhere with Internet could watch, on YouTube.com.
Of course, anybody can upload video to the popular company-time-waster, uh, video streaming site, but some do so at their own copyright infringement peril.
However, KITV shows would be there through an official agreement between parent company Hearst-Argyle Television and Google's YouTube.
Hearst-Argyle stations in Boston, New Hampshire, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Sacramento started uploading video to dedicated YouTube channels last week, according to Mediaweek Online.
All 29 Hearst-Argyle stations could get YouTube channels, said Mike Rosenberg, KITV president and general manager.
"We'll probably be (added) down the road a little, based on our size."
CHINN HO BEING HONORED
FORMER Honolulu Star-Bulletin owner Chinn Ho will receive posthumous special recognition from the Asian American Journalists Association Aug. 4 in Miami.
AAJA will honor the late Ho as one of the first, if not the first, Chinese Americans to own a major metropolitan daily newspaper.
He and other local investors purchased the Star-Bulletin in 1961.
The joint operating agreement he established to combine printing and advertising sales functions of the Bulletin and Honolulu Advertiser, spared the life of the then-smaller Advertiser.
Both papers have racially diverse staffs, and "the Star-Bulletin, and to a certain extent the Advertiser, has been hiring Asian Americans and women since the 1930s," the AAJA announcement said.
HONOLULU'S 10 most-aired radio commercials from May 28 to June 3 included four local advertisers, according to New York-based Media Monitors LLC
