Kenny Choi joined KPIX 5 in April 2016 as co-anchor weekday mornings from 4:30-7am and Noon.

Prior to KPIX 5, Kenny anchored the weekday evening 6 and 10pm broadcasts on KITV in Honolulu.  He joined KITV in 2010 on the morning crew.

Reporting is also part of Kenny’s day. He says it’s his chance to engage with viewers face to face.

His journalism career got a jump-start during his undergraduate years at UCLA. That’s when Kenny worked for the Daily Bruin Newspaper and for The Bruin News, the local news station for the UCLA community. Kenny came to Hawaii from New York where he worked for Sportsnet New York as an anchor and reporter. Prior to that he worked at Fox23 News in Tulsa, Oklahoma, KTBZ-1430 Radio, and KVEW-TV in Kennewick, Washington.

When he’s not working, Kenny is always looking for the next best surfing spot, cycling up and down hills, and working on his tennis serve. As an active member of his community, Kenny has worked with the Special Olympics, and the Boys and Girls Club, among other organizations. He also served on the American Lung Association of Hawaii’s Council and is a member of the Asian American Journalists Association.
