The Post-Star is a daily newspaper in Glens Falls, New York. Its circulation is approximately 35,000.

History

The current Post-Star newspaper traces its roots to 1904 with the founding of a paper called the Morning Post.

In 1909 the owners of The Morning Post acquired a competing newspaper called The Morning Star. They combined the endings of the two names to become The Post-Star.

The newspaper was sold in 1971 by longtime publisher and major shareholder Arthur Irving Sr. to Howard Publications.

The Post-Star is currently owned by Lee Enterprises out of Davenport, Iowa. Lee has controlled the paper since February 12, 2002 when it took over operations at all Howard Publication's newspapers.

Current Operations

The Post-Star publishes every day.
