Paul Honda is a sports reporter at the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.


He got hands-on with newspapers as a kid, reading the Honolulu Star-Bulletin with his mom every day. In the eighth grade, he became a delivery boy with 63 daily and 103 Sunday deliveries on his route in Moiliili. That was back in 1978 when a newspaper cost just 25 cents. The musings of Bill Kwon, Jim Easterwood and many other scribes had an impact.


Honda later wrote for the award-winning The Bulldog at Kaimuki High School, and Ka Leo O Hawaii at UH before moving to Kona, where he was a one-man sports desk at West Hawaii Today. Eight years later, he returned to Oahu and was in charge of content for RainbowSportsNetwork.com and HawaiiSportsNetwork.com, and HSN magazine. He began stringing for the Star-Bulletin in 2003 and joined the sports staff in 2004.
