HE RUNS A TV STATION, WHY NOT A CITY?

Longtime tv news executive Rick Blangiardi is thinking of going into politics.

Blangiardi, a Hawaii native who is currently the president and general manager of Hawaii News Now, is contemplating retirement after a 42 year career in television, and running for mayor of Honolulu.

Blangiardi started his tv career in Honolulu back in 1977 before moving to the mainland in the late 80’s before returning to Hawaii in 2002.

Blangiardi would be a political newcomer entering what is expected to be a crowded field.
