The Windsor Star is the regional daily newspaper of Windsor, Ontario published Mondays through Saturdays, and is owned by the Postmedia Network Inc. The publication had its main office at 167 Ferry Street from 1923 to 2012 before moving to its current location at 300 Ouellette Avenue. In November 1996, it opened a printing facility in south-central Windsor.[2]


It began as the weekly Windsor Record in 1888, changing its name to the Border Cities Star in 1918 when it was bought by W. F. Herman, to the Windsor Daily Star in 1935 following the amalgamation of several small communities, and finally to the Windsor Star in 1959. Although W. F. Herman died in 1938, the paper continued under the direction of his wife, Adie Knox Herman, along with Hugh Graybiel and W. L. (Lum) Clark.[2] The paper was sold to Southam Press in 1971 and then to Canwest (who bought Southam Press) in 2000.[3]

The Windsor Star publishes six days a week, Monday through to Saturday. [4]
