February 6, 2008 at 8:13 AM (PT)
When AUGIE T makes his debut from 5:30-10a TODAY on VISIONALY RELATED Hot AC KQMQ (93.1 THE ZONE)/HONOLULU, he'll be making local radio history, reports THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER. The comedian-DJ, whose full name is AUGIE TULBA, will become the first local commercial radio personality to be heard statewide, with simulcasts on KNUQ (Q103)/MAUI, also heard in KONA on the BIG ISLAND and KMKK/MOLOKA'I during the morning, and a third delayed broadcast on KSRF (THE SURF 95.9)KAUA'I in an afternoon drive-time slot.
"I've missed talking to (HONOLULU) people, so I'm really looking forward to this," TULBA said yesterday, moments after deplaning from a trip to SAIPAN, where he raised scholarships for youths in the MARIANA ISLANDS. "KQMQ has been a station I listened to over the years, with folks like MICHAEL QSENG and WILLIE MOKU. My goal is to get the station where it used to be: up in the ratings."
