Yesterday, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser announced that they will be putting up a paywall on their website for certain parts of their online coverage. They did not provide details on what specifically would be behind the paywall or how much they are planning to charge.
“There are stories you won’t get on mainstream television and certainly not on commercial radio,” Brower says. “So I wouldn’t say it is all doom and gloom. It’s out there if you look for it.”
Brower worked in broadcasting for about 10 years during and after college, including local radio stations KSSK and KPOI. He started in radio at KGU on Seaside Avenue in Waikiki.
