Donalyn Dela Cruz, Gov. Neil Abercrombie's spokeswoman, is writing and producing a new Hawaii travelogue show.

"Passport Hawaii," hosted by Brook Lee, a former Miss Universe, and co-hosted by Bryan Clay, who won an Olympic gold medal in the decathlon, will appear on KGMB.

Hawaiian Airlines, Hawaiian Host, Starwood, Bishop Museum, the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce, InsideOut Hawaii Magazine and Chai's Island Bistro are sponsoring the half-hour show, according to the producers.

Dela Cruz, a former television reporter, said she does not believe her work on the show will conflict with her responsibilities as the governor's spokeswoman. She also said she does not plan to interact with the television station or the show's sponsors.

"I love to tell stories. I love to write," said Dela Cruz, who earns about $70,000 a year as the governor's spokeswoman. The show is scheduled to premiere on Monday.
