Oahu Publishing Buys HI Tribune-Herald & West Oahu Today: John Hart

Less than 24 hours ago, word came that newspaper magnate David Black was adding two more dailies to his Hawaii stable. Black’s Oahu Publishing Inc. announced it is purchasing the Hawaii Tribune-Herald and West Oahu Today. They’ll join Kauai's Garden Island newspaper acquired last year and flagship composite paper, The Honolulu Star Advertiser, which was created when Black’s group purchased the Honolulu Advertiser from Gannett four years ago. Media watcher and Hawaii Pacific University professor, John Hart, joined the show with a look at how this latest Hawaii newspaper consolidation fits into the national context.

Miller Media Mastermind: Danielle Miller

It takes moxie to become an entrepreneur, along with a variety of skills that can’t always be contained in one person – that’s why savvy business leaders turn to one another for support as they struggle to expand their operations.  Danielle Miller knows from experience what kind of mutual support women entrepreneurs can give one another and that’s why she is convening Miller Media Mastermind, a weekly support group of independent professionals.
