KITV has named Chuck Parker news director effective immediately, to succeed Genie Garner who left in February.

The announcement was made this afternoon in the newsroom at KITV, Hawaii's ABC network affiliate.

"Chuck's deep experience in Hawaii, passion for local news and expertise in multi-platform news generation make him the right choice to lead KITV4 News forward," said Andrew Jackson, president and general manager. "Our commitment to localism and superior local coverage across all platforms is reflected in Parker's appointment."

Parker previously worked at the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, where he had served as deputy city editor. He started at KITV in January 2010. Parker also had served as news director at KHNL-TV, managing editor at KGMB-TV and executive producer at KHON.
