KITV4 Island News has a long tradition of being the voice of the Islands. The station first went on the air in 1954. From the beginning we have been providing important news, entertainment, sports information. Today, KITV4 Island News produces 30+ hours per week of local news programming. We start early starting with Good Morning Hawaii at 4:30 a.m. weekdays. We were the first in the market to produce a Midday Newscast. Our evening line-up begins with our newscast at 5 p.m., then an hour at 6 p.m., and a comprehensive nightly report at 10 p.m. on KITV4 Island News Tonight. On the weekends, KITV4 is the only station that provides a weekend morning newscast (both Saturday and Sunday) with Good Morning Hawaii from 6 a.m. - 8 a.m. On Saturdays we have news at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. On Sundays, we have news at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.


As an ABC affiliate, KITV4 is proud to include the network line up of entertainment programming, World News Tonight, and live sporting events.


KITV4 is a major supporter of the community, bringing to air many local events, and sponsoring great causes that benefit the people of Hawaii. Most recently, a simple call to action raised almost $70,000 for Helping Hands Hawaii to distribute to families struggling to keep food on the table during the pandemic -- all money coming from our generous viewers in just a few weeks. Hawaii is our home and the people of Hawaii are part of our family.
