News director Genie Garner has left KITV, the ABC-affiliate in Honolulu.

Garner will be “seeking future opportunities on the mainland,” KITV president and general manager Andrew Jackson told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Her last day was Friday.

Garner joined the station in 2009 from WHAS, the ABC-affiliate in Louisville. Jackson said Chuck Parker, the managing editor of KITV, will be “taking a leadership role” until Garner’s replacement is named.
