GRAY’S GOT ITS NEW HAWAII HONCHO

We reported to you eleven days ago that longtime tv news executive Rick Blangiardi was eyeing the door to retirement and another one that would take him into politics.

Now that the first door has been passed through, Gray has named his replacement at its Hawaii duopoly, KHNL/KGMB.

Katie Pickman, who’s been director of sales at the two stations for the past three years, got the nod to replace Blangiardi.

She has 20 years of experience in the business.

Her appointment takes effect immediately.
