The Sudbury Star began as a daily in January 1909 as the Daily Northern Star, but it was in trouble in the first year of operation. Staff took over ownership of the struggling newspaper, led by foreman William Edge Mason, who then found 10 prominent investors to provide financial backing to the paper.
In 1948 Mason died and the ownership was taken over by his W.E. Mason Estate and sold to the paper's publisher and general manager J. R. Meakes in 1950.
In 2013, the paper moved from its longtime home at 33 Mackenzie Street in Sudbury to new offices at 128 Pine Street. The managing editor of The Sudbury Star is Brian MacLeod, who assumed the role in 2006.
