Who We Are
Philstar.com is a Philippine news, sports, lifestyle and entertainment portal for the Filipino global community. It is the online presence of the STAR Group of Publications, a leading publisher of newspapers and magazines in the Philippines.
Our publications include The Philippine STAR, one of the leading English broadsheets in the country; Pilipino STAR Ngayon, a tabloid style newspaper published in the national language; Freeman, Cebu's oldest English language newspaper; Banat, a tabloid published in Cebuano; and People Asia Magazine, which profiles personalities in the Philippines and the region.
From its modest beginnings in August 2000 as the online edition of our banner publication, The Philippine STAR, Philstar.com has grown in content and reach over the years.
In our 16th year, we break the ground with an innovative news site that customizes the experience for each reader while still highlighting the most important stories of the day. It also offers interactive and engaging features to help readers make sense of the news. Our goal remains the same—to keep Filipinos, wherever in the world they may be—to be in tune with events in the Philippines, in touch with the rest of the world and in sync with the needs and trends of the times.
