The Pasadena Star-News is a paid local daily newspaper for Pasadena, California. The Star-News is a member of Southern California News Group[1] (formerly the Los Angeles Newspaper Group), since 1996. It is also part of the San Gabriel Valley Newspaper Group, along with the San Gabriel Valley Tribune and the Whittier Daily News.

First published in 1884, the paper was originally located at the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Oakland Avenue for years. That building is now home to Technique at Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts and 24 Hour Fitness. Editors in the historical Star-News Building included Ed Essertier, Charles Cherniss, Bill Winter, Larry Wilson, and Frank Girardot. Publishers after Bernard J. Ridder included Bill Applebee.

Ridder Newspapers bought the Star-News in 1956[2] and Bernard J. Ridder took over as publisher. Ridder merged with Knight to form Knight Ridder in 1974. The paper was sold off in 1989 to a company owned by William Dean Singleton;[3] the Thomson Corporation bought majority control of the paper a year later.[4] Thomson sold the Star-News to Singleton's MediaNews Group in 1996,[5] which went on to become part of the Los Angeles Newspaper Group.[6]

The newspaper also publishes the Rose Magazine which provide coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl Game.[7]
