lindsey Fukano Biography
Lindsey Fukano is an Emmy Award-Winning anchor and producer; catch her weekdays on Good Morning Hawaii and at noon on Island News Midday. Lindsey started her journey at KITV4 in 2017 as morning anchor and reporter. That same year, she won an Emmy and an Edward R. Murrow for a show she solo-anchored and solo-produced. Lindsey has a passion for delivering news stories that impact our beautiful community of Hawaii.
She noticed that the Aloha State was lacking the informative news coverage between the morning and evening newscasts, and applied her drive in a new way. With 10 years of anchoring, producing and reporting experience, she launched KITV4’s Midday Update, a two-minute news segment she produced and anchored, which aired at 11:30 am.
In 2018, Lindsey’s Midday Update expanded into a half-hour newscast with KITV4’s Weather Forecaster Tesia Worley and transformed into Island News Midday. Later that year, after positive feedback from the community, Island News Midday moved to the noon timeslot.
Throughout the year, Island News Midday was the first to break major news stories such as the Kilauea eruption, Hi-EMA resignations following the Missile Alert FCC Investigation, and the DLNR helicopter crash at Sacred Falls.
Lindsey is honored to serve our community of Hawaii through her passion—delivering stories that matter, in both the mornings and at midday. She works hard putting together an entire newscast every day, loves what she does, and loves living in Hawaii. Bringing the news to our viewers is not just a job to her— it’s both her lifelong passion and calling.
Lindsey started in the news industry in 2009, after graduating with a Master’s Degree in Television and Radio Broadcasting from San Francisco State University. She has anchored, reported, and produced at TV stations in California, Washington State, and Wyoming.
In addition to the Emmy and Edward R. Murrow, she also won an Associated Press Bill Stout Memorial Award for Excellence in Spot News, and an award for Best Reporter by the Wyoming Association of Broadcasters. Of all the places she’s worked, Lindsey feels the most at home here in Hawaii.
Being half-Japanese, Lindsey is heavily influenced by both Asian and Island Culture and loves being a part of the Aloha State community.

Five questions for Lindsey Fukano
Introducing the newest member of KITV’s Good Morning Hawaii ohana!
Say aloha to KITV’s new Good Morning Hawaii anchor Lindsey Fukano. She joins Maleko and Lei on the anchor desk Monday morning! Here’s a little get-to-know-you introduction… five questions with Lindsey:
What struck you first when you arrived in the Aloha State?
Lindsey: Ocean water that’s clearer than any beach in my home state of California. And I love Southern California beaches. The skyscrapers that seem to come out of the water along Waikiki give it an incredible, otherworldly feel. Most of all, the kindness I receive from the people here. I feel more at home in the Aloha State than anywhere else I’ve lived.
What’s the favorite assignment you’ve ever covered?
Lindsey: For the past two years I’ve been fortunate enough to cover the Academy Awards in Hollywood. Both years I interviewed Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan (right before he left the show). I was a tad starstruck.
What type of stories do you see yourself telling here?
Lindsey: Stories that have a meaningful impact on people. That can help save a life. For example, during one of the worst El Nino seasons to hit California last winter, I covered a mudslide that engulfed more than 100 vehicles on a local highway.
While covering it, I went into the mud and a Highway Patrol Officer showed me how to bust open a car window from the inside, should you get stuck in your car. I know there are plenty of natural disasters and devastating storms here too, and I would like to give viewers stories with real takeaways.
What’s your hidden talent?
I don’t have any, but my cat, Kitten Adams, does! He plays fetch. But his version of fetch works like this: I’m the one that has to throw, and then go chase after the ball, while he watches. I’m getting pretty good at it.
What activity do you think you’ll try to learn first?
Growing up in Huntington Beach, CA, my dad made surfboards for a living. I’d like to brush up on my surfing skills, and would love to take up paddleboarding too!
Don’t miss Lindsey and Good Morning Hawaii, debuting Monday, August 8 at 5 am!
