The Honolulu Star-Advertiser published its first edition June 7, 2010, combining the best of the 128-year-old Honolulu Star-Bulletin and the 154-year-old Honolulu Advertiser.

The new paper and website,, took on a new look, but retained many familiar columnists, features and other elements from both papers.

“We hope to bring together the best of the people and put out a great newspaper,” said the Star-Advertiser’s majority owner, David Black. “It’s quite important that the paper continues to have elements from each of the dailies. We want readers to feel comfortable.”

The newspaper is managed by Oahu Publications Inc., a subsidiary of Black Press. Dennis Francis is president of Oahu Publications and publisher of the Star-Advertiser. The senior management team at the Star-Advertiser also includes Dave Kennedy, senior vice president/marketing and Roger Forness, vice president/technology.

The newsroom and administrative offices continue to occupy offices that had been home to the Star-Bulletin, at 500 Ala Moana Blvd., in Waterfront Plaza. The newsroom is on the second floor of Building 7 in Suite 210, with the sales and administrative staff on the fifth floor.
