Hawaii Tribune-Herald is a newspaper that is owned and published daily in Hilo, Hawaii by Stephens Media LLC.[1]


Hawaii Tribune-Herald resulted from several mergers of Hilo-area newspapers. The first, Hilo Tribune, began publication on November 23, 1895 and changed its name to the Hilo Daily Tribune in 1917.[2] Hawaii Herald (August 13, 1896 – February 22, 1923) was another predecessor paper.

The Hilo Tribune-Herald, formed from a merger of Hilo Daily Tribune, Daily Post-Herald, and Hawaii Herald, began publishing February 19, 1923. It continued under that name until March 1964, when it assumed its present title.[2]

In 1962, the newspaper began publication of a weekly special edition for the west (Kona) side of the island, which later became West Hawaii Today, now published daily.

2007 average net circulation was 18,715 (daily), 21,638 (Sunday).

With the demise of the Hawaii Island Journal in June 2008, Stephens Media Group now runs all the commercial newspapers on the island including the Big Island Weekly.[3]
