Star plans a new look to mark an­niver­sary

Bayside and Northern Suburbs Star - - NEWS | WELCOME -

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

2009.

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.

If you have any queries about our changes, please con­tact us on 3623 1800.
