About Us

The Shropshire Star provides unrivalled news and sport coverage for Shropshire and Mid Wales, printing four editions per day, five days a week, plus one Saturday edition.

The newspaper launched on October 5, 1964, inheriting a daily circulation of around 19,000 from the old Shropshire edition of the Express & Star.

It became the first evening newspaper in Europe to be printed by web-fed offset, which refers to the use of rolls (or webs) of paper supplied to the printing press.

And the Shropshire Star continues to lead the field in newspaper technology to this day.

August 2012 saw the relaunch of ShropshireStar.com in a responsive design – believed to be a first for any regional newspaper website in the UK.

Meanwhile, Shropshire Star apps for iPad and iPhone means readers can keep up with their favourite local newspaper, wherever they are.

The Shropshire Star headquarters are in Ketley, Telford, where the newspaper is also printed.
