KGMB and KHNL anchor and reporter Stephanie Lum is known for her down-to-earth, bubbly personality, and her willingness to get the story, whether she’s working the field with the University of Hawaii’s Vili the Warrior or stepping into the ring with UFC Champion BJ Penn. “I love that I get to learn something new every day and see and do things that people don’t normally get to see and do,” says Lum.

“I get to share those experiences, and the news information that I gather, with the community.” For Lum, the most shocking stories to come out of Hawaii this past year centered on the downfall of the local economy. “It was hard seeing mom-and-pop stores that I knew growing up closing, and seeing my friends and family going through tough times,” she says.
