It’s published by Trinity Mirror Merseyside. The editorial offices are at their Liverpool headquarters.
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. The relaunch of the series was accompanied by a switch to a magazine-style format and to a publication day of Wednesday.
A new web domain was launched for the revived Star series at liverpoolcommunities.co.uk, although one year on it continued to redirect to the Echo.
