In 1888, King Kalakaua issued a royal charter, commissioning a magazine. Then titled Paradise of the Pacific, this publication became HONOLULU Magazine, making it the oldest magazine west of the Mississippi.
Executive Editor at HONOLULU Magazine
Katrina Valcourt graduated from UH Mānoa in 2012 with a degree in communication, completing the Video and Digital Cinema track while interning with the alternative newspaper Honolulu Weekly, where she continued to work until the publication folded in 2013. Shortly after, she joined the editorial team of HONOLULU Magazine, filling every role from temporary assistant to interim editorial director. She’s originally from a teeny town called 100 Mile House in British Columbia, Canada, but she hasn’t been in a snowball fight since 1995. She is now the executive editor of HONOLULU and likes to sew sock squids and throw pots.
