During the 1950s and '60s, variety shows hosted by Ed Sullivan, Lawrence Welk, Arthur Godfrey and others were among the most popular programs on television. During this time, "Televi Digest" was one of the longest-running and most popular shows in local television. The live, hourlong show produced by George Tanaka and directed by Clarence Chun was a fixture on Sunday afternoons for a decade on KONA, Channel 2 (now KHON).
Barbara Kim was the emcee-host for the show during most of its run, replacing the late Violet Niimi Oishi in 1956. During the series' run, Kim was known as Barbara Lee, a stage name the producer chose for broader appeal at the time. A generation grew up watching Kim at a time when there were few TV channels to choose from. ....Courtesy of Honolulu Star-Bulletin. POSTED: Sunday, November 01, 2009 (More)
