With Hawaii down to one daily newspaper and three television news operations consolidating into one, Hawaii's media landscape is drastically different from what it was just a year ago.

Dan Boylan moderates a panel of experts in the field, including Hawaii News Now News Director and former Honolulu Advertiser Editor Mark Platte; Hawaii Civil Beat/Peer News Editor John Temple; University of Hawaii Journalism Professor Gerald Kato; and Hawaii Public Radio News Director Kayla Rosenfeld.

This conversation was recorded on August 5, 2010 in the PBS Hawaii studio. Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30.
