We're the first to bring Hawaii Five-0 fans some exciting news this morning. Just minutes ago, Executive Producer Peter Lenkov confirmed the popular Sunset on the Beach premiere in Waikiki is a go for Season 3. Here's his tweet: @HawaiiFive0CBS @PLenkov It's official! Book 9.23.12 for #SOTBS3, a premiere in paradise for Hawaii Five-0 Season 3. See You There, Aloha! #H50 #FortheFansof5-0.

More details plus a live Skype interview with Peter Lenkov at 6:45 this morning on Sunrise at 6:45.

You may want to hit the roads early this morning because UH and private school students are in session. We'll be keeping an eye out for any hot spots and bring you traffic updates every 10 minutes on Sunrise.


Take note of bus route changes due to budget cuts. Arrival and departure times have been adjusted for buses in Aina Haina, Kaimuki, Kahala up to Kapiolani Community College and Waikiki. We have a list at HawaiiNewsNow.com.


For the first day of fall semester at the University of Hawaii, Howard Dicus will report live from campus starting at 6:30. He'll talk with UH Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple and other officials to find out about everything from traffic and parking to teaching in the 21st Century.


Hawaii News Now is also following developments on teacher talks. Today, HSTA Board Members will decide whether they should accept the Governor's offer to have a Federal Mediator resolve a contract dispute. Hawaii's 13 thousand public school teachers have been working under an imposed contract since last July.


Choppy seas for boaters. A small craft advisory is posted through 6 tonight. Dan Cooke will have more on Sunrise.


Plus, you may not know his name, but you know his voice. The man who gives life to characters on Family Guy, Cleveland Show, and American Dad drops by Sunrise. Kevin Michael Richardson talks about his famous alter egos, his favorite celebrity to impersonate, and sings in his own voice. That's coming up at 7:50.

See You on Sunrise!
