How TV Broadcasting Vet Rick Blangiardi Wound Up As Honolulu’s New Mayor

As general manager of three major television stations in Honolulu, Rick Blangiardi oversaw the market’s most-watched newscasts for nearly two decades. But over the past year, Blangiardi began making headlines of his own. Blangiardi took office earlier this month as the new mayor of Hawaii’s capital — winning in a landslide after a blistering 11-month campaign that included more twists than a TV drama (including a pandemic that upended his platform).
