Jeff Portnoy, who served as radio analyst for University of Hawaii basketball, will no longer be heard on game broadcasts on Blow Up “ESPN Honolulu” KKEA 1420. The station opted to go with a solo broadcast from play-by-play announcer Bobby Curran immediately.
“Bobby Curran will continue to be our play by play commentator for all UH men’s basketball games. Just as Bobby has always ably covered the away games solo, so too will he do so for our home games this year,” KKEA General Manager Matt Apana said in an email to The Star Advertiser. “We do not have plans to replace Jeff at this time. We thank Jeff for serving as a color analyst these past years and wish him the very best.”
