The Pacific Daily News, formerly Guam Daily News, is a morning edition newspaper based in Hagåtña, in the United States territory of Guam. It is owned by Gannett Corporation and is published seven days a week. Joseph Flores, later the Governor of Guam, founded the newspaper.[1]

The Pacific Daily News ("PDN" as nicknamed by locals) offers readers the latest local headlines and stories covering Guam, Micronesia and the Pacific Rim region, along with breaking news from the United States and the world. Most of what the PDN covers usually involves political matters and issues affecting those living on Guam.

In addition, the PDN also features a weekly entertainment section published each Friday called "GuamPika", which is geared towards visitors to the island.

As the only daily newspaper in the Micronesia region, the PDN is flown by air to all major islands across the region.

Sister publications[edit]

The PDN publishes these spinoff weeklies, geared towards military personnel:

  • The Navigator - Which focuses on the Naval community
  • The Pacific Edge - Serving the Air Force community
