Title: New Zealand Star


Mission: New Zealand Star was conceived in 2002 and launched in 2004 to provide continually updating national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. New Zealand Star, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the country, the capital Wellington, the largest city Auckland, and the length and breadth of the North Island and the South Island. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

New Zealand Star and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.

Associated sites include: Asia Bulletin | Australian Herald | Asia Pacific Star | China National News | Japan Herald | Philippine Times | Singapore Star | Auckland Sun | Brisbane Star | Hong Kong Herald | Manila Metro | Sydney Sun
