Editor at Large of HONOLULU Magazine
Robbie Dingeman is editor at large of Honolulu Magazine. The award-winning journalist has been telling the stories of Hawai‘i for more than 20 years in daily newspapers, on television and on the web. She’s covered politics, crime, consumer news and more. A graduate of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, she also co-authored two books, Honolulu Homicide and Honolulu CSI. On a way more fun note, she serves as one of two co-artistic directors for the semi-annual Gridiron news parody show, which allows her to obsess about the news and crack jokes while raising money for student internships through the Hawai‘i chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
