NAWILIWILI — ‘Twas the night before a three-game football series, Thursday, and “Anahola” Joel Pahukula was set up in a corner of JJ’s Broiler at Anchor Cove, his special guests being high school girls volleyball coaches Chad Delanoza and Rich Roberts.
This was the second week that Pahukula hosted the live sports show on KQNG Radio Am570, his previous guests including KIF defending foot-ball champion coach Keli‘i Morgado.
With the advent of the hour-long live radio show that airs Thursday evenings between 7 and 8 p.m., sports fans are now on par with other locations where special radio and television shows on sports are the norm.
Pahukula, who also provides play-by-play broadcast for KQNG Radio at the KIF football games, said the programming format is pretty flexible, and in the future, he anticipates doing shows from off-island when he makes trips to the state playoffs.
More recently, Waimea High School principal Bill Arakaki, who also sits as Kaua‘i’s representative to the Nissan Hall of Honor, mentioned that there is serious discussion taking place on the launching of a KIF website that will be linked to the Hawai‘i High School Athletic Association (HHSAA) site.
“We have our logo, there. We just need to make it work,” Arakaki said.
