The Llanelli Star is a Welsh regional newspaper covering the areas of Llanelli and Carmarthen in the county of Carmarthenshire, Wales. It is published on a weekly basis in a tabloid form. The newspaper is published by South West Wales Publications, the same company behind the South Wales Evening Post. In 2012, Local World acquired South West Wales Publications owner Northcliffe Media from Daily Mail and General Trust.[1] Geoffrey Lloyd was the editor from 1965 to his death in 1986.[2]


The Llanelli Star has a sister paper, the Carmarthen Journal. Until recently the Star was published on a Thursday, but both are now published on Wednesdays. The two papers have different formats and news content which varies by area.

The Llanelli Star covers the district of Llanelli and the Gwendraeth Valley where the Carmarthen Journal covers the town of Carmarthen and also the Gwendraeth Valley.
