"'...[Koji] Ariyoshi, although saddened by the closure of his newspaper, looked forward to the opening of a new union-sponsored newspaper. The ILWU decided to launch a new, community-oriented, liberal newspaper. A mainĀ­land editor was brought in and the Hawaiian Reporter was launched on June 18, 1959. Ariyoshi worked on this newspaper during its brief five month life. The newspaper failed to reach a circulation level that would enable it to break even, and the union closed the newspaper."
