Robert Kekaula has been named the play-by-play voice for Oceanic Time Warner’s coverage of University of Hawaii football this year, it was confirmed today.
Kekaula, heretofore a color commentator on KKEA radio, will be joined by color commentators Darren Hernandez and Nate Ilaoa on Oceanic’s pay-per-view and soon-to-debut UH Channel.
They replace Jim Leahey, Shawn Ching and Russell Yamanoha, who handled the duties for KFVE in 2010, the final year of that station’s 28-year arrangement with UH.
Leahey will continue to team with Chris McLachlin on Rainbow Wahine volleyball.
Mike Machado, Leila Wai and Jessica Domingo will handle UH soccer.
Oceanic is expected to announce its pay-per-view lineup and spell out details of its debuting UH Channel shortly.
