After singing on national television, and getting ”airtime,” Crystal Akana kicked her career off as the morning show female radio host in 2004 with Lanai & Augie. Since then, she’s worked with Greg Hammer, Rory Wild, Pilanca, & Junior Kekuewa Jr to name a few.
Outside of the studio, Crystal keeps herself busy volunteering, emceeing events, consulting, and as a Sunday School Teacher. She’s also held different positions such as:
- A Co-host for KITV’s Jerry Lewis LIVE MDA Telethons, and also emcee for their yearly gala’s held at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel
- Radio host on Hawaiian Sky Rhythms for Hawaiian Airlines
- Former Public Relations Director for SHOPO
- Marketing/PR for the Minority Leader at Hawaii’s State Legislature to name a few
Born & raised on the Windward side of Oahu, Crystal’s a simple local girl who loves to jump rope, loves family time near the ocean, a paddler who crossed 42miles across the Molokai channel, and a Dallas Cowboy die-hard fan. She’s a supportive wife of a Hawaii Army National Guard Soldier, and also has her hands full with two toddler girls just 19 months apart.
You can hear her on the air weekday afternoons on HI93 or on 947 KUMU’s Quiet Storm.
