Star-News is the daily newspaper for Wilmington, North Carolina, and its surrounding area (known as the Lower Cape Fear). It is North Carolina's oldest newspaper in continuous publication.[2] It is owned by Halifax Media Group.

The Star-News has a circulation of 41,300 daily (47,400 Sunday)[1] and covers a three-county region in Southeastern North Carolina: New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender.


The paper was originally published in September 23, 1867, as the Wilmington Evening Star by former Confederate Major William H. Bernard. Shortly after first publishing the paper, Bernard changed the paper to come out in the morning and changed the paper name to the Wilmington Morning Star.[2]

The newspaper was named the Morning Star until the April 24, 2003, edition when it became the Star-News.[3][4]
