The Philippine STAR is a daily broadsheet circulated throughout the Philippine archipelago. Owned and published by PhilSTAR Daily, Inc., The Philippine STAR is regarded as a vaunted pillar of Philippine media and is the only broadsheet with an established circulation in Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia.
Comprehensive coverage, balanced reporting, responsible journalism. These are just some of the attributes readers commonly associate with The Philippine STAR – qualities that continue to endear the newspaper to legions of Filipino readers who value credible news and information.
Founded on July 28, 1986 by veteran journalists Max Soliven, Betty Go-Belmonte and Art Borjal, The Philippine STAR has lived up to its mission of informing and inspiring the Filipino people by upholding truth and fairness at all times. Its integrity as a newspaper is anchored on the Biblical motto, “Truth Shall Prevail.”
Beyond upholding journalistic ideals, The Philippine STAR fiercely guards its reputation as a versatile newspaper, lending meaning to its popular slogan, “The only paper you read from cover to cover!”, which aptly captures the appeal of the paper to readers who have made it a habit to read The STAR.
Outside of its superior news reportage, the Opinion Section comprises one of The STAR’s strongest advantages. Imagine a newspaper that pools together the brilliant minds of such luminaries as Cito Beltran, Jarius Bondoc, Billy Esposo, Dik Pascual, Ana Marie Pamintuan, Marichu Villanueva, and many others whose views influence the opinions of decision-makers and important personages in Philippine society.
As the only newspaper with a subscription to all the major foreign news agencies, The STAR succeeds in presenting world news and events more graphically and comprehensively compared to other Philippine broadsheets.
Complementing the paper’s genius for opinions are sections that are not only informative but also tasteful and attuned to the current Filipino lifestyle, whether it be in the field of Sports, Business, Lifestyle or Entertainment.
The Philippine STAR’s dynamic growth in a span of only 20 years under the able leadership of its president and CEO, Miguel G. Belmonte, has been phenomenal. From an eight-page single section newspaper in 1986, the paper now averages 80-90 pages a day with full-color capability in each of its pages. Already the 23rd newspaper to come off the press after the Edsa Revolution, The Philippine STAR has climbed steadily to become the leading newspaper in the country today.
On its 20th year, The Philippine STAR was conferred as the Newspaper of the Year Award by the Rotary Club of Manila“ for consistently upholding the principles of responsible journalism in maintaining fair and balanced reporting, as well as espousing the pursuit of good governance, free enterprise, social justice and key aspects of nation-building.”
It was also adjudged Outstanding Newspaper of the Year for 2006 by the Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption “in recognition of its invaluable service to the community by courageously sticking to the truth and to the basic tenets of professional journalism.”
As a tribute to its business success, The Philippine STAR also received the Agora Awards Marketing Company of the Year Award from the Philippine Marketing Association in 2006.
As the country’s leading newspaper, The Philippine STAR commits itself to its vision of leadership by faithfully serving its readers as a shining beacon of news and information.
