Living Local with the Baraquios started out as a fun idea conceived by former TV news anchor/reporter Bernadette Baraquio. She wanted to create a TV show that highlighted only GOOD news, inspirational stories, and informative factoids about her hometown … beautiful Hawaii...
Original episodes were hosted by Angela, Bernadette, Gloria, Rose and Tess Baraquio. Since then, the five-sister cast has been reduced to two, although the others continue to make cameo appearances when their schedules permit!
Since its inception, the program has expanded to include special musical performances from island celebrities ranging from The Brothers Cazimero, Makana, Melveen Leed, Amy Hanaiali'i and Tia Carrere. It has also featured popular entertainment figures like Andy Bumatai, Frank Delima and Hawaii's favorite comedians, Da Braddahs.
The most endearing aspect about the show is experiencing the interaction between the sisters and feeling the powerful undertones of what it means to be "Ohana."
Living Local with the Baraquios can be seen on Sundays at 9:30pm on KFVE the Home Team.
