The City and County of Honolulu has issued a proclamation declaring Friday, June 28, 2019 as Paula Akana Day.

Paula is leaving the anchor desk to become the Executive Director of the 'Iolani Palace.

Mayor Kirk Caldwell says he'll miss getting the news from Paula.

"She is going to do something that is equally important, you know, that the story, the legacy of 'Iolani Palace and the stories that come out of there regarding the first peoples, there's no one more appropriate."

The governor also sent over a special message.  He praised Paula for serving the community with integrity and keeping Hawaii's residents informed.   

While Paula is leaving the anchor desk, she's not leaving KITV4 altogether. 

She will be working on special projects for us.
