Star plans a new look to mark anniversary
THE Bayside Star is preparing to celebrate its 30th birthday in November and to mark the occasion we’re about to reveal a new look.
Late last year The Star joined News Corp Australia and we are excited about becoming part of the suburban Quest Community News network.
On October 4 we will be launching our new look which will bring us in line with our sister publications.
This new look will reflect the changing needs of our readers, while continuing to focus on the stories that showcase the best our community has to offer.
Our new design is based on extensive reader research and feedback, with cleaner pages, more photos and more opportunities to connect with your community.
The Star has a long and proud tradition of delivering stories on the issues, people and events that matter to our readers, and supporting our local businesses.
Our first edition was published on November 18, 1987 with a small team under the guidance and ownership of general manager Barry Riddle.
Although that first edition was produced in a borrowed office, The Star soon found a home in Loudon Street, Sandgate before moving to larger premises in Deagon Market Square and finally to its current location at 97 Braun Street, Deagon in
In February 2015 the paper was bought by Australian Regional Media.
About a year later we launched a new-look publication and in March 2016 launched our own website and Facebook page.
Now, as we prepare to join the Quest Community News network, The Star will continue to bring you all the news from home – it’s the one place to discover everything that makes our community great, plus the information you need to ensure it stays that way.
