TV anchor Stacy Loe leaving Hawaii News Now
Hawaii News Now anchor Stacy Loe has announced that she is leaving television news to spend more time as a mom.
“After almost 20 years in the business, this is the right decision for me and my family,” Loe said. “Working a night shift is almost mandatory when you’re anchoring the news, but it’s also prime family time. I want to spend as much of that time as possible with my 5-year-old son and the rest of my family.”
Rick Blangiardi, general manager for Hawaii News Now, said, “Stacy’s many contributions to our newsroom as a great team player and very solid journalist for the past 19 years cannot be captured in a simple sentence. We fully understand and support her difficult decision to leave at this time in support of her family. She will be missed and loved by all of us, now and always.”
Loe’s broadcast career began 19 years ago at KGMB9. She’s stepping down almost one month after the station entered into a shared services agreement with KHNL and KFVE. Today, KGMB and KHNL are owned by Raycom Media. KFVE is owned by HITV - MCG Capital Corporation. The two companies share news services where Loe is currently a co-anchor for Hawaii News Now at 10 p.m.
Loe’s last day on air will be Nov. 25. Her co-anchors Keahi Tucker and Stephanie Lum will continue to anchor Hawaii News Now at 10 p.m.
