SPORTS DE-EMPHASIS LEADS TO DEPARTURE

We won’t know until later this week where Hawaii News Now sports anchor/reporter Taryn Hatcher is going to end up.

But we do know she is definitely out the door at Raycom triopoly KGMB/KFVE/KHNL.

She was hired right out of Rutgers University three years ago.

In the past year, Hawaii News Now shifted its on-air sports emphasis from regular segments on newscasts to reporting on breaking news and special-interest stories.

Hatcher also was co-host and co-producer of the “Nick Rolovich Show,” a weekly half-hour program on the University of Hawaii football team.
