Hawaii Reporter - Award Winning Hawaii News Coverage

Hawaii Reporter Inc. is an award-winning, independent, online news journal launched in February 2002 to cover key business, government, political and educational stories in Hawaii. Local journalists Malia Zimmerman and Jay McWilliams co-founded the publication, which now boasts readers from around the world. The state’s top business and political leaders consider Hawaii Reporter a daily “must read.” Though Hawaii Reporter publishes all points of view, the publication features many local and national columnists and contributors, the vast majority who are free market oriented, and who offer opinions and news not found elsewhere in Hawaii.

Special Reports & Deep News Coverage Of Hawaii

In addition to the state’s most current political and business news, Hawaii Reporter’s special reports on the slave factory in American Samoa, elderly abuse, the 2004 mayor’s election, the Ka Loko Dam breach, the Hawaii Superferry, the Honolulu rail and other transportation issues, climate change, Women of World War II, Growing Up in Hawaii, Slice of Life Hawaii, legislation at the Hawaii State Capitol, and corruption and waste in local government, have gained widespread local and national attention.

Hawaii Reporter was also the local inspiration for the Hawaii Journalism Shield law passed in 2009 – a law considered one of the best in the country by national journalism advocacy organizations.

The Hawaii Reporter government and business records section, renamed “Hawaii Inside Track” in 2009, is managed by co-founder Jay McWilliams. Her research and extensive database, which has more than 2 million records, allows businesses to more easily and immediately research competitors, vendors and clients on the Internet, without having to waste valuable personnel time or money in the city, state and federal courts and offices. The Hawaii Inside Tracking System helps businesses keep a close watch on the other businesses or people they are involved with in their day to day activities by sending the subscriber an email if these businesses or people on their tracking list appear in public record.
