The current Post-Star newspaper traces its roots to 1904 with the founding of a paper called The Morning Post.
In 1909 the owners of The Morning Post acquired a competing newspaper called The Morning Star and merged the two papers into The Post-Star.
The newspaper was sold in 1971 by longtime publisher and major shareholder Arthur Irving Sr. to Howard Publications.
For a time, the Post-Star maintained two distinctly different online presences. PostStar.net was an all-inclusive, subscription-based offering; Poststar.com offers the reader a few free articles per month, requiring a subscription beyond that. As of April 2007, PostStar.net ceased operation.
