Living the Aloha life is KELLY DONNELL, who will probably not miss the snowy Portland, Maine winters he experienced while heading up the creative team at WGME. Not that Portland isn’t a very cool spot – it is. It’s just that comparing Honolulu and Portland is a tad bit unfair. Kelly is now in the islands, under the palms, not all that far from Waikiki. Ahhhh – paradise. He’s taken the reigns at Raycom’s duop, KGMB/CBS and KHNL/NBC, which is what the islanders call Hawaii News Now. Kelly has his degree from University of Florida and has worked in some amazing markets, like New Orleans, Seattle, Philly and Chicago. Mahalo for the picture, Kelly and a big Well Dunne! to you.
