Longtime Hawaii television executive Kristina Lockwood has been named vice president and general manager of KHON-TV, by new owner LIN Media, based in Rhode Island.
“I’m so excited to be home in Hawaii and here, back at KHON,” she told the Star-Advertiser. Her Wednesday arrival at the station proved to be “quite the homecoming,” she said.
Lockwood returned to Hawaii from Cox Media, where she most recently served as director of sales for California, which included the cable company’s San Diego, Santa Barbara and Orange County operations.
Lockwood began working in Hawaii broadcast media in 1992 and served in various capacities at KGMB, KITV, and KHON, until moving to California for the Cox Media job in 2007.
