'Pacific Fusion' debuts

A new television program, "Pacific Fusion," hosted by Brook Lee and by Asian-American journalists (and kama'aina expats) such as Jan Yanehiro, will debut at 4 p.m. tomorrow on KHON2.

Brook Lee moves to TV.

The program intends to highlight a spectrum of Asian-Pacific American culture, food, art, music, business, and history, with human-interest stories about high-profile community members and celebrities.

The show will launch in Honolulu and San Francisco, then expand to other cities.

Tomorrow's debut will feature interviews with Kristi Yamaguchi, at home with her new baby; George Chung, 49er coach who combines martial arts and football; a visit to San Francisco's hot restaurant Slanted Door, which gets 3,000 reservations a day, and interview with chef George Phan; plus Lee's story of becoming Miss Universe.

Future episodes will cover dragon boat racing; Masanori Murakami, the first Japanese player ever to play in American Major League Baseball; Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who plans to go for gold again in 2006; and the hip way to hit the bars, sipping sake.
