The Stabroek News is a privately owned newspaper published in Guyana.

It was first published in November 1986, first as a weekly but it later changed to a daily print newspaper.[1] The entry of the paper into the mass media in Guyana brought a new openness to the media environment in the country.[2]

It was founded by David DeCaires, who died on November 1, 2008.[3]

Stabroek News is also the sole distributor of DirecTV Caribbean in Guyana.

There has been some controversy recently as illegal distributors of DirecTV Caribbean in Guyana have not provided services to those who have paid for it. [2]
