Hawaiian AM station reactivates

The AM radio station on 620 kHz in Hilo, Hawaii, has returned to the air with the call letters KNHU, using the slogan “Honu 62.” The station is now owned by Mahalo Broadcasting LLC of Arizona, and is currently running a news-talk format with time-shifted shows from the mainland. But co-owner James Walker says the format is “not set in stone.”
The station closed last July when the previous owner, Skynet, lost the lease for its transmitter site. Mahalo said it has temporarily resolved the issue pending a permanent resolution.
