Best known to a generation of Hawaii viewers as "Pogo Poge" in the locally-produced Checkers & Pogo show, White also wrote and produced several episodes of the show. Checkers & Pogo, which ran from 1967 to 1982 and produced by KGMB/Honolulu, is considered the longest-running, most successful children's show in Hawaii. White was the only original member of the series, outlasting the three actors who played Checkers during its run.
In addition to the Checkers & Pogo show, White had a minor role as the attorney general in six Hawaii Five-O episodes. In addition to his television career, White was also a popular radio DJ in Denver prior to being hired by KGMB.
