For those who grew up in the islands the name "Lyle Galdeira" is probably well known. To me it is anyway. I am suprised that he has left the television industry for the real estate industry.
"For years he has been the likeable guy of the local news who told you why you were lucky to live in Hawaii, whether products did what they claimed to do and, of course, where to eat cheap. Lyle Galdeira [sic], who had been a fixture on our televisions for many years, recently left the news business after deciding it was time to challenge himself in other areas.
“I just wanted to do something different. I’ve been at Channel 8 for 10 years, and it’s time to refresh and get a new aspect on life and career.”
Galdeira [sic] decided to channel his energies in the booming real estate market and now works with Elite Pacific Properties, a company that specializes in upscale real estate."
