Ashley Nagaoka anchors Hawaii News Now’s “First at Four” newscast and the popular midday round-up show, “This Is Now.”
After graduating from college, Ashley went on to become a news reporter and producer at KGMB, Honolulu’s CBS affiliate. The Kauai-native then moved across the country, to Washington, D.C., where she worked as press secretary and spokeswoman for then-U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa.
After five years on Capitol Hill, Ashley moved back to Hawaii and in 2017 re-joined KGMB, this time as a member of the Hawaii News Now team.
She serves her community on numerous boards and youth programs and has a very busy schedule so we were thrilled to add her to our Cooking Hawaiian Style Ohana where she shares with us very personal recipes that represent her mom, dad and brother.
Ashley Nagaoka’s brother Ryan has been making this salmon since high school. It’s a favorite request for potlucks, etc.
