Daily broadsheet newspaper circulated on the west side of Hawaii's Big Island.

Primary geographic focus: Hawaii
Organization type(s): Media

West Hawaii Today is a daily broadsheet newspaper circulated on the west side of Hawaii’s Big Island from North Kohala to Ka`u. The newspaper is the main source of local news to the West Hawaii community, and it also provides national and international coverage.

The original office was in Kainaliu, but the newspaper moved to North Kona Shopping Center in 1977 where it printed three editions each week in a pressroom that is now Kona Brewing Company’s brewery.

West Hawaii Today experienced healthy growth and finally moved to a brand new 27,000 square foot facility on Kuakini Highway in early 1993. From this location, West Hawaii Today will be prepared to expand as the Kona Coast continues to grow so that the newspaper can continue providing vital news and information to the residents of West Hawaii for years to come.
