After 31 years of continuous writing for Honolulu newspapers, Charley Memminger’s run will end with his last Charleyworld column on May 30. The new Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the result of a merger, will not be picking up his column on a freelance basis.
Memminger began his three times a week humor column “Honolulu Lite” in 1992 during his 30 years of employment with the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and is a frequent winner in the National Society of Newspaper Columnists writing contest.
Last year he took a layoff when the paper took drastic steps to stay in business. He soon began writing “Charleyworld,” a once-a-week freelance column for the Advertiser. Memminger admits it will be strange not writing a newspaper column after so many years.
He remains optimistic, “It’s been fun and we have many marvelous things in the works .. stay tuned …”
