Since its establishment in 2001, Oahu Publications Inc. has emerged as Hawaii’s major print media company. OPI’s flagship publication is the daily Honolulu Star-Advertiser, established in 2010 when the Honolulu Star-Bulletin (est. 1882) and The Honolulu Advertiser (est.1856) merged after OPI purchased The Honolulu Advertiser from Gannett Corp. In addition to the Star-Advertiser, OPI owns and publishes a diverse group of publications, including MidWeek, three military papers and various specialty publications, as well as luxury and hotel magazines. OPI also offers advertisers a full spectrum of custom printing services, insert, and direct-mail options. No other media source comes close to reaching as many Hawaii consumers. OPI’s versatile product portfolio allows advertisers to reach the masses, zero in on specific zip codes or target specific niche markets.
