The Philippine STAR is the flagship title of the country’s largest and most successful print media enterprise, the Star Group of Publications. Owned and published by Philstar Daily Inc., The STAR is a vaunted pillar of Philippine journalism whose integrity is anchored on the Biblical motto, “Truth Shall Prevail”.
Veteran newsmen Max Soliven, Betty Go-Belmonte and Art Borjal founded The Philippine STAR on July 28, 1986 in the heels of the Edsa Revolution that propelled Corazon Aquino to the Philippine presidency. True to the ideals of its founders, The STAR continues to inform and inspire readers the world over. It is a three-time winner of the prestigious Newspaper of the Year award given by the Rotary Club of Manila (2005, 2012 and 2013), which recognizes excellence in Philippine journalism.
In The STAR one finds a broad spectrum of ideas and opinions from must-read columnists whose views influence decision-makers in Philippine society.
The Philippine STAR also fiercely guards its reputation as a valuable source of news and information on Sports, Business, Lifestyle and Entertainment with best-in-class sections that carry on the paper’s highest journalistic traditions. These sections help make The STAR a truly enjoyable daily reading habit for Filipinos all over the world, as we say, “from cover to cover”.
For the well-informed, every issue of The Philippine STAR is an investment worth making.
The Philippine STAR’s success under the leadership of its president and CEO, Miguel G. Belmonte, has been phenomenal. From an eight-page single-section newspaper that first hit the streets in 1986, The Philippine STAR Group is now a P5-billion multimedia enterprise with a global presence through its popular website, www.philstar.com, and various digital offerings that make it a dominant force not just in print media but also in social media and the worldwide web.
Besides headlining the country’s most profitable and most influential newspaper group, The Philippine STAR also remains the print medium most trusted by Philippine companies and brands to get their message across as it has garnered the highest advertising gross among all print media entities for six years running since 2006.
Today, amidst a media environment in a constant state of flux, The Philippine STAR forges ahead. Armed with its solid foundation in journalism and an enviable track record of public service coupled with success, it remains committed to a vision of leadership founded on serving Filipino readers as a shining beacon of news and information.
