The Post-Star is a daily newspaper in Glens Falls, New York. Its circulation is approximately 35,000. It serves the counties of Warren, Washington and Saratoga in New York State including the cities of Glens Falls and Saratoga Springs. It is the only daily newspaper published in Warren County. It competes with The Saratogian of Saratoga Springs and the Times Union of Albany for the Saratoga County market.

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.

On April 20, 2009, the Post-Star won its first Pulitzer Prize, for the editorial work of Mark Mahoney.[1][2]

For a time, the Post-Star maintained two distinctly different online presences. PostStar.net was an all-inclusive, subscription-based offering; Poststar.com is freely available and advertising driven. As of April 2007, PostStar.net ceased operation.
