The San Juan Star is an English-language daily newspaper based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper was originally[clarification needed] published by Star Media Network, a subdivision of San Juan Star, Inc.[1]


The newspaper was founded in 1959 by William J. Dorvillier, and was intended for the English-speaking population in Puerto Rico.[2] Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist William Kennedy was once the managing editor of the Star, soon after its inception to 1961.[3][4] Other contributors included Eddie López[5] and Juan Manuel García Passalacqua. Scott Ware served as managing editor from 1991 to 1992, then editor until 1994.[6] The paper was sold in 1996 from then owner Scripps-Howard to Gerry Angulo, who had formerly worked for money manager Ivan Boesky.[7]


On Friday August 29, 2008, The Star published its last issue and closed down with publisher Gerry Angulo because the union did not agree to cost cuts. At the time, the Star had 120 employees. The paper had reportedly been losing money for several years and the losses deepened due to the 2008 recession.[8][9]


In 2009, The San Juan Star reopened as a weekly with a new staff and a new vision.[10] It has since increased to daily publication: Monday through Thursday with an additional weekend edition. On October 23, 2015, Gerry Angulo died as a result of a car accident.[11]
