    Oahu Publications buys The Garden Island newspaper

    Oahu Publications Inc., publisher of the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, has acquired The Garden Island newspaper from Lee Enterprises, the companies announced today.

    The Garden Island, with a circulation of 9,509 daily and 8,413 Sunday, will continue to be published Monday through Friday and Sunday.

    The Garden Island's editorial staff will be increased, and advertising and some distribution functions will continue under the existing staff, Francis said. Production and printing will be handled at the Star-Advertiser's state-of-the-art printing facility at Kapolei on Oahu, which will result in discontinuing about 14 jobs on Kauai.

    Oahu Publications Inc. buys the Garden island newspaper

    Is Oahu Publications on a mission to acquire all the newspapers in the state?

    Are people still reading paper copies of the newspaper?

    Will the Garden island website end up with a pay-wall??? (bad)

    Some points for discussion on this. Anyone from Kauai on this board? Comments?
    I'm still here. Are you?

    Will the cost of a daily issue increase when it's printed on Oahu and has to be shipped on Hawaiian Airlines?
