Who we are
Big Island Video News serves the entire Hawaii Island. Our goal is to supply residents and visitors with video news, updated regularly.
If you live on Hawaii Island, you can see our daily cable news program, airing on Na Leo o Hawaii public access TV on Oceanic Time Warner Cable television (5:00 p.m. on Channel 54 and again on 9:30 p.m. on Channel 53). You can see the shows streamed online at naleo.tv.
Although our news coverage can be seen all over the world thanks to the internet, we remain focused on the County of Hawaii, and state issues that impact the residents of the Big Island. This website hopes to serve as a hub for visitor input, whether it be video comments, video submissions, or embedded local content from other video sites. Most of what you see here will be original content, produced by Big Island Video News.
The site is operated by news videographer Dave Corrigan, who previously worked for over a decade as “Chief Photog” for the NBC network affiliate in Atlantic City, NJ. The voice of Big Island Video News is long-time Hilo resident Stephanie Salazar.
