Deal or No Deal - Case #6 - Local Girl Megan

Megan Abrigo was born in O'ahu Island but was raised in the town of Mililani, Hawaii. Growing up, she spent most of her time surfing and playing sports on the North Shore. She attended Marymount University and after graduating in May 2005, she immediately pursued a career in modeling. Luckily, within a few months, her career flourished. She went from print, to commercials, and eventually to hosting an action sports show called Dialed In. Her fervor for modeling and traveling serves as her motivation to continuously aim higher.

Megan Abrigo's exposure landed her a spot on the TV game show Deal or No Deal. At the moment, she carries briefcase number 6.

Ever wondered what happened to 101.1 FM which played techno music in Hawaii?

From their website:

Energy 101 Forced Off The Air By Full Power Commercial Station

June 30th, 2007 marked the final broadcast day of Energy 101 in its current form.
June 30th, 2007 - It is a very sad day for us and all those fans and lovers of dance music in Hawaii. For 16 months, since March 6th, 2006, Energy 101 has existed as the first and the only all dance radio station in Hawaii and one of only less than 10 nationwide. We were also the only Low Power FM to have ever existed on Oahu. A full power commercial station which shares our frequency on Maui has successfully petitioned the FCC for this channel on Oahu. The new 101.1 began broadcasting on July 1st, 2007. They are able to do this because Low Power FM's are not protected by the FCC and must give way to full power commercial radio stations. We must be at least 3 clicks away from any other station. The only available channel on Oahu at this time is 101.1 under current LPFM restrictions. There is a bill before congress to remove this restriction. If this happens, we may be able to come back on a new channel. We will keep you posted on this as details develop.

Here's more info from the Star Bulletin:

Oahu gets new FM station; Maui rock station rolls down the dial

OAHU has a new FM radio station, KORL-FM 101.1, which signed on at 4 p.m. Sunday.

The mainstay of the station will be Japanese-language programming mixed with Hawaiian music from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, provided by Ikuko Tomita's LTN Hawaii Ltd.

She broadcast her first show on KORL-FM, also simulcast on sister station KORL-AM 1180, live from the Pacific Beach Hotel.

The AM signal was clearer than the FM signal, but that will be rapidly rectified by engineer Kevin Douglas, said Jim Carroll, business manager for Kauai-based Hochman Hawaii-Three Inc., which owns the station.

Tomita was a director of Hawaii-based International Communications Corp., the now-defunct company that owned KJPN-AM 940 starting in 1994. She has been associated with Japanese-language programming on other stations, branded as Radio K-Japan, since KJPN was sold in 2002.

KORL-FM will play smooth jazz when the K-Japan programming is not on the air and will discontinue the AM simulcast after about a week, Carroll said.

I really like the smooth jazz part that they play but I still miss the techno music. We need more variety in Hawaii when it comes to radion stations. Maybe HD Radio will fill it someday...
