The Wave FM Morning Crew: Kimo & Nikki

Kimo Apaka is a product of Hilo, Hawai’i. An entertainer by choice, comedian by chance and a local, Facebook sensation by surprise; frontman to a following of several thousand people. He is excited to help caffeinate your morning drives and hopes to broadcast Aloha across the Big Island’s airwaves. You’re more than likely to catch him either taking a selfie or snapping his amazing cohost, Nikki, acting a fool. Mahalo to everyone for allowing this polished “moke” to have a voice!

 

Nikki began her career as a performing artist at the age of 11. The performing bug bit her and never let go. From Anaheim to San Francisco, California, Nikki performed, directed and crewed in various stage-productions. After receiving her B.A. in Anthropology and a minor in Education at San Francisco State University, Nikki developed and implemented an after-school theatre arts program for the YMCA of San Francisco. Since moving to Big Island in 2014, where her family roots lay, Nikki has worked as a Special Education teacher, serves as Vice President on the Board of Directors for the Aloha Theatre and has worn several hats with Resonate Hawaii. She is thankful for her On-Air opportunity which allows her to promote amazing community events as well as stretch her creative-craziness in making the morning commute entertaining. She enjoys Taco Tuesdays, water sports and all things sparkly.
