Honolulu Civil Beat 
A reporter and editor for more than 30 years, Patti joined Civil Beat in 2011. She's won numerous awards for her work, including two Pulitzer Prize-winning projects.


Will McGough
Publisher & Editor 

Wake and Wander Hawaii
In an effort to recapture the imagination and spirit of storytelling, Will launched the new monthly travel print publication, Wake and Wander Hawaii, which delivers personal, experiential travel stories to both locals and visitors to Hawaii. A free monthly publication, Wake and Wander Hawaii aims to deliver personal, experiential travel stories to both locals and visitors to Hawaii. It combines magazine-style storytelling with the casual accessibility of a small newspaper. The publication covers the Hawaiian Islands in the form of travel, culture, food, drink, and people, as well as continental U.S. and international destinations, many within a nonstop flight from Honolulu. In the face of digital media, decreasing attention span, and list-driven online content, McGough hopes to recapture the imagination and spirit of storytelling.
