HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - We are delighted to announce that Shawn Ching will be joining Hawaii News Now next Monday, Feb. 7 as an anchor-reporter.

Shawn has a storied broadcast career that spans two decades. For 13 of those years, he worked for KITV4 as its 6 pm and 10 anchor as well as weekend anchor, reporter and sports director. He has also established himself as an excellent color commentator for the University of Hawaii football games on KHNL, KFVE and KCCN and high school football games on OC-16.

His second career is just as impressive as Shawn received his law degree and worked as an attorney for Kobayashi, Sugita & Goda, specializing in commercial and construction litigation and then for King, Nakamura & Chun-Hoon, specializing in labor and employment law, personal injury and commercial litigation. Besides his law degree from UH, Shawn also holds a Master's in Political Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from UH.

He is a member of St. Francis School Board, the Oahu Interscholastic Athletic Association Board and the UH Athletic Advisory Board.

Having Shawn join Hawaii News Now is a game-changing moment for us and solidifies our place atop the local television landscape. Shawn also makes our outstanding news team that much stronger and shows our commitment to bringing Hawaii the type of high-quality news coverage it deserves. Shawn will be co-anchoring the 5 pm and 5:30 pm newscasts with Stephanie Lum, giving viewers yet another reason to turn to us first.
