Did you know that the Jamaica Star Newspaper started operating in 1951? That was the same year that hurricane Charlie struck the island.

Jamaica Star Newspaper


That too was the same year the Overseas Weekly Gleaner started - a year after the Childrens' Own fist publication.

To date, it is still one of the most adored and respected newspaper publication in the island. Of course they still carry the latest news and sports, but they also have an entertainment section, commentary, letters, the popular "Tell Me Pastor" and other special features.

By the way, the Tell Me Pastor feature, hosted by Dr. Aaron Dumas is one of it's most established offerings, and in fact, is almost synonymous to The Star. Individuals typically write to the pastor on touchy or unusual relationship issues and the doctor responds accordingly.

They now also boast a discussion forum, chat room and blog in their interactive segment on their website. Additionally, the new "Star Werks" feature includes a photo gallery, featured music videos, and and even and events guide.

The Star is a part of the Gleaner Company. Other companies in The Gleaner fold includes Go Local, Go Jamaica, Sports Jamaica, Sports Caribe, Hospitality Jamaica, Youth Link Jamaica, Discover Jamaica and Voice UK.

Local copies of The Star can also be had a all the major retail establishments including supermarkets, pharmacies and petroleum stations.
