Our History

In August 2000, Philstar Global Corp. launched with Philstar.com. Starting out as the online edition of The Philippine STAR, Philstar.com has developed its own editorial team and content. It became one of the country’s biggest digital news outlets.

Alongside its own digital journalism, Philstar.com hosts content from:

The Philippine STAR, a leading English-language broadsheet

The Freeman, Cebu’s oldest English-language newspaper
