Nathan Eagle

Managing Editor

Nathan Eagle lives, works and plays on Kauaíi. An Ohio native, his passion for exploring new cultures has taken him from Spain to the middle of the Pacific. Starting as an environmental reporter, he now serves as managing editor of The Garden Island.

Eagle’s passion remains fixed on holding elected officials accountable, providing a voice for endangered species and serving the community by delivering timely, accurate stories on the issues that matter most. Preserving journalistic integrity and maintaining high ethics are the foundation of daily decisions. When Eagle is not in the office doing his best to build his team of dedicated reporters – and improving his own performance through constant self-criticism – he is either in the water free diving or on the side of a mountain hiking.

[HI 0401] - The Story of The Garden Island & the Kauai community: Nathan Eagle, managing editor, The Garden Island (2:12)

Nathan Eagle, managing editor, The Garden Island, says The Garden Island was launched in 1902. The ownership has passed from local families to the Pulitzers and currently to Lee Enterprises. Eagle describes the Kauai community, which is made up of Japanese-Americans, Philippine-Americans, Caucasians and native Hawaiians. Since its readership is older, the newspaper expects the island to support a print newspaper for the foreseeable future.
