The Waterford News & Star is a local newspaper based in the Irish city of Waterford, first published as the Waterford Star in 1848.

In December 2007, it changed from a broadsheet to a tabloid.[1] The Waterford News & Star in 2010/11 moved from their offices in Michael Street, Waterford City, to Gladstone House, Gladstone Street, Waterford.[2] and covers stories from across the city and county.

John Cunningham was editor from 1982 to 1984.[3]

The newspaper was part of the Thomas Crosbie Holdings group. Thomas Crosbie Holdings went into receivership in March 2013.[4] The newspaper was acquired by Landmark Media Investments.[5] In December 2017, a sale was agreed to The Irish Times [6] pending regulatory approval. In July 2018, the sale of the title to The Irish Times was complete. [7][8]

The sub-editing for The Waterford News & Star was provided by Wexford Echo Limited. Wexford Echo Limited went into liquidation in June 2017. The liquidator will keep Wexford Echo Limited going while he seeks a buyer. [9]
