The Star Newspaper Kenya

This paper is a daily newspaper based in Nairobi, Kenya. It was launched in July 2007 as the Nairobi Star and later rebranded as The Star in 2009.

The Star Newspaper Kenya: Circulation:

After rebranding in 2009, The Star’s circulation was around 15,000–20,000 in 2010. This was against the total Kenyan newspaper circulation in 2010 of around 320,000 copies per day. Nonetheless, this was a remarkable improvement. In 2007, The Star’s circulation per day was at 5,000–8,000. The paper first made a profit in September 2009.

The newspaper’s affiliates:

The newspaper is owned by the Radio Africa Group. The media group also runs other media stations such as Kiss 100, Classic FM, and East FM. It is based in Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya.

The other top newspaper in Kenya is the Standard. The Standard is one of the largest newspapers in Kenya with a 48 per cent market share. It is the oldest newspaper in the country and is owned by The Standard Group, which also runs the Kenya Television Network (KTN), Radio Maisha, The Nairobian (a weekly tabloid) and Standard Digital which is its online platform. The Standard Group is headquartered on Mombasa Road, Nairobi, having moved from its previous premises at the I&M Bank Tower.

The newspaper was established as the African Standard in 1902 as a weekly by Alibhai Mulla Jeevanjee, an immigrant businessman from British India. In 1905 Jeevanjee sold the paper to Maia Anderson and Rudolph Franz Mayer, who changed the name to the East African Standard. It became a daily paper and moved its headquarters from Mombasa to Nairobi in 1910. At the time the newspaper declared strongly colonialist viewpoints. The British-based Lonrho Group bought the newspaper in 1963, only a few months before Kenya’s independence. The paper changed its name to the Standard in 1977 but the name East African Standard was revived later.
