Island News is published in part by Island Press, a division Hearst Magazines, Inc. The first issue was published on Nov. 24, 1931. The title was changed to the Stroller’s Weekly. It was later renamed to the Island News Professional and Douglas Island News. H. B. Selby & E. S. Stevens edited the issue. The name last continued until March 3, 1933, when the last edition was issued.
Island News Professional brought to Alaska several new writers who wrote pieces dealing with the business of the islands and the surrounding areas. It also included travel and news columns as well as a mining report and an article about Kenai Fjords National Park and an island weather report. A calendar of the cultural life of the island and a wildlife and mining report were also included. Local obituaries were another important addition. In this issue, the obituaries were listed alphabetically under each city. This made it easier for readers to locate the right information. Learn more about Island News Headlines here.
Island News Professional was primarily an online publication, but it also had business-oriented pages. The pages were divided into two sections The Commercial Business section, which dealt with the business owners and their companies and the Employment and Training section, which was designed to keep people informed about local job openings. The business section was created to offer advertisements as well as details of job openings. The employment section included an ad in the classified section for each type of job available, including construction, fishing, general contracting,, landscaping or any other trade. There are also the listings of employers seeking workers, as well as a directory that lists the phone numbers and names of businesses.
Island News Digest published the Kenai Peninsula News, a magazine that included local content. It was mostly focused on the Kenai Peninsula and reported on everything from tourism and travel to arts and culture. The Kenai Digest was completely consumer-oriented, unlike the Peninsula News which was primarily business-focused. It featured articles on education, family activities, sports, culture, and local government.
Other topics included culture, education as well as religion and labor as well as technology, business owners and television and radio production. As expected, there was plenty of news about the Kenai Peninsula and Kenai Peninsula area. Many people were proud to have a reliable and objective source of business news. Many business owners and the public generally appreciated the insightful reports that the Peninsula News gave them.
In addition to publishing periodicals, Island News also has its own website. The site includes an email newsletter that is distributed to the members of the group, articles and essays, news stories, research materials, as well as forums.
