The Garden Island newspaper has announced it will bring back its Saturday edition beginning July 12. Editor-in-Chief Bill Buley said he and his staff are “thrilled to again be putting out a print edition every day.” The Garden Island’s former owners discontinued the Saturday edition in May 2012 to try to save money.
“Since I came on board a little over a year ago, one constant I’ve heard from residents is that they miss having a Saturday paper,” Buley said. “We’re listening. And we’re glad to now be able to provide Kauai with a newspaper seven days a week – a true daily paper – and we’re looking forward to giving the community even better coverage of events, people and places. With our return to Saturdays, we’ll be able to provide timely reporting of Friday sports and breaking news, while also featuring more of what makes Kauai so special. We’ll keep doing our best to be the place where people can learn what’s happening on our island.”
