About Us

Hawaii Tribune-Herald is a daily broadsheet newspaper distributed on the Hilo-area of Hawaii’s Big Island. The newspaper is the primary news source for Hilo residents and locals. Circulation is 16,000 Monday through Friday and 18,000 on Sunday. Hawaii Tribune-Herald is owned and operated by Oahu Publications, Inc.

Since its establishment in 2001, Oahu Publications Inc. has emerged as Hawaii’s major print media company. OPI’s flagship publication is the daily Honolulu Star-Advertiser, established in 2010 when the Honolulu Star-Bulletin (est. 1882) and The Honolulu Advertiser (est.1856) merged after OPI purchased The Honolulu Advertiser from Gannett Corp. In addition to the Star-Advertiser, OPI owns and publishes a diverse group of publications, including MidWeek, three military papers and various specialty publications, as well as luxury and hotel magazines. OPI also offers advertisers a full spectrum of custom printing services, insert, and direct-mail options. No other media source comes close to reaching as many Hawaii consumers. OPI’s versatile product portfolio allows advertisers to reach the masses, zero in on specific zip codes or target specific niche markets.
