It’s published by Trinity Mirror Merseyside. The editorial offices are at their headquarters in Liverpool.
It was launched in June 2013 as part of a revived Star freesheet series for northern and eastern suburban Liverpool originally launched in 1984. In January 2012 Trinity Mirror North West & North Wales merged the Anfield & Walton Star, the Maghull & Aintree Star and the Bootle Times into a single newspaper, The Star, which was distributed as a free supplement to the Tuesday edition of the Liverpool Echo as well as being sold as a stand-alone title.
Although still a tabloid, the relaunched series was also revamped and now appears in a magazine-style format. The publication day has also changed, to Wednesday.
The revived Star series has a new URL at liverpoolcommunities.co.uk, although for the time being it redirects to the Echo‘s website.
