Another great networking luncheon was held on January 23rd at Pohai Nani. Our special speaker, Howard Dicus, gave valuable news and insights on the current state of the economy; “Hawaii in 2019”. The group then enjoyed an extensive Q&A with Howard on a variety of topics about the state’s: legislature, infrastructure, and transportation systems. Mahalo nui loa to everyone involved who helped facilitate a fantastic luncheon event. KBG recognized the Sailor and Marine of the Quarter on Wednesday with 2 awards and two goodie bags. A big thank you to Hospital-man Temple and Lance Corporal Hernandez and all of our military personnel for their service.
Howard Dicus is HNN’s Chief Explainer, taking economic news, federal government action and other stories and translating them into plain English. Howard describes himself as a: Radio news anchor, reporter, editor and manager for three radio networks in Washington D.C. before relocating to Hawaii and starting life a new as a business reporter and explainer. Another way to describe his role, especially on KGMB News “Sunrise”, is that he takes stories that are not telegenic and makes them so, sometimes by drawing cartoons to explain them. Howard grew up in Chesapeake Bay country and spent most of his career in Washington D.C., moving full-time to Honolulu at the end of 2000 to cure the homesickness of his Hawaiian first wife Marilyn. He has covered a riot, anchored newscasts on three radio networks, reported live from two presidential inaugurations, and managed an entire global news service.
