In June of 2020 Hawaii News Now began to broadcast its successful digital newscast ‘This is Now’ on KHNL-TV weekdays at noon. ‘This is Now’ is hosted by HNN reporter/anchor Ashley Nagaoka and award-winning HNN producer/director Jonathan Jared Saupe.

Since December 2019, the show has been live-streamed on Hawaii News Now’s Facebook page, HawaiiNewsNow.com, and the HNN app. The shows are also published on the station’s YouTube page and audio podcast platforms.

“The quick success and popularity of ‘This is Now’ are confirmation that Hawaii viewers are looking for a quality, trusted news source to watch while at home or on their lunch breaks,” said Scott Humber, HNN News Director. “We’re excited to launch our first-ever midday newscast and provide our viewers with an additional 2.5 hours of original programming in our KHNL lineup.”

‘This is Now’ airs weekdays at noon on KHNL after ‘The Tamron Hall Show,’ as part of the popular ‘Today Show’ morning block of programming.
