Editor’s Note: Why We Write

There were many days in 2020 when even I was reluctant to read the news. The pandemic, human tragedy, political battles, conspiracy theories and plenty more made it hard to take another daily dose. 

Editor's Note: The Best for the 3rd Year

On June 25, 2020, Hawaii Business Magazine received nine national awards, including being named the country’s best regional business magazine for the third year in a row.

We’re 65 Years Old and Never Felt Younger

Ethel and Joe Murphy launched a business magazine in 1955 called Hawaii Engineer, which eventually morphed into Hawaii Business. That founding 65 years ago makes us the first and oldest regional business magazine in the country.

This page is meant to shine some light on how Hawaii Business Magazine journalists, editors and designers do their work.

We talk about the editorial mantra that guides our story selections, the methodologies behind our lists, the awards we’ve won and some of our editorial policies.
