Beloved Radio Sports Host Bobby Curran Makes Triumphant Return to Air

HONOLULU, HI – aio and ESPN Honolulu are pleased to announce the return of one of its long-time radio personalities and beloved hosts; Bobby Curran. Following a successful double lung transplant last November, Curran will make his return to ESPN Honolulu broadcasting later this month. 

“The Bobby Curran Show” will return to the air starting July 24 from 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., Monday through Friday.

“We are thrilled to have Bobby back at ESPN Honolulu and with our aio ohana,” said Matt Apana, ESPN Honolulu General Manager. “We know he has been missed dearly by our listeners and fans, many of whom called in, written letters and emails, and posted on our social media channels, sending him their aloha and well wishes.”

“The Bobby Curran Show” has been a staple on ESPN Honolulu since 1994, while Curran’s career broadcasting University of Hawaii sports has spanned more than three decades. His last show aired in July 2022 prior to taking time off to prioritize his health. After his surgery last November, he took several months of intensive rehabilitation and treatment in Arizona. 

Once cleared by his medical providers, Curran returned to the island in May 2023 to attend his son’s high school graduation from Mid-Pacific Institute. With his strength returning, Curran is eager and excited to be back on the Hawaii airwaves. 

“I would first like to extend my appreciation and aloha to everyone who sent their well wishes and kind words throughout this journey – the support and prayers have been overwhelming and have been instrumental in my return,” said Curran. “There is still a road to recovery, but I’m so happy to be back on air doing what I love. During the more challenging times, I found solace and motivation in getting back to Hawaii and being on air talking about Hawaii sports.”
