History[edit]

The Sault Star was established in 1912, the same year Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario became a city.[3] It was transformed into a daily newspaper by James W. Curran, who purchased the The Sault Weekly Star from lawyer (and later jurist) Moses McFadden.[4] Curran renamed the paper The Sault Daily Star and remained the paper's publisher and owner until 1941. From 1941 to 1975 the paper was led by his son Robert Curran.

Family ownership ended in 1975 when it was sold to Southam Newspaper, later acquired by Hollinger International (1996) and by Osprey Media (2002). In 2007 Osprey and the Sault Star was acquired by Sun Media.
