With a rare Category 5 hurricane bearing down on the Hawaiian Islands, KHON Honolulu got coverage help from owner Nexstar’s Washington bureau and stations in California, Nevada and Pennsylvania. The effort led to an outpouring of support from the community. “I’ve never in my life seen anything like it,” said Kristina Lockwood, KHON’s general manager.
