The Star-Ledger

The Star-Ledger is the largest circulated newspaper in the U.S. state of New Jersey and is based in Newark. It is a sister paper to The Jersey Journal of Jersey City, The Times of Trenton and the Staten Island Advance, all of which are owned by Advance Publications.

In , The Star-Ledger's daily circulation was reportedly more than the next two largest New Jersey newspapers combined, and its Sunday circulation was larger than the next three papers combined.[4] It has suffered great declines in print circulation in recent years, to , daily in , then to , "individually paid print circulation," which is the number of copies being bought by subscription or at newsstands, in [2]

In July , the paper announced that it would sell its headquarters building in Newark.[5] In the same year, Advance Publications announced it was exploring cost-saving changes among its New Jersey properties, but was not considering mergers or changes in publication frequency at any of the newspapers, nor the elimination of home delivery.[6]

History[edit]

The Newark Daily Advertiser, founded in , was Newark's first daily newspaper. It subsequently evolved into the Newark Star-Eagle, owned by what eventually became Block Communications. S. I. Newhouse bought the Star-Eagle from Block in and merged it with the Newark Ledger to become the Newark Star-Ledger. The paper dropped Newark from its masthead sometime in the s, but is still popularly called the Newark Star-Ledger by many New Jersey residents.[7][8]

During the s The Star-Ledger's chief competitor was the Newark Evening News, once the most popular newspaper in New Jersey. In March , the Star-Ledger surpassed the Evening News in daily circulation, because the Newark News was on strike. The Evening News shut down in [9]

After the Newark Evening News moved to a high-traffic area (with the potential of trapping its delivery trucks in inner-city traffic) the Star-Ledger opened a satellite plant in Piscataway. The Piscataway location offered quick access to Union, Monmouth, Somerset, and Middlesex counties.[10]

The Star-Ledger was the recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting in for its comprehensive and clear-headed coverage of the resignation of New Jersey GovernorJim McGreevey, after he confessed to adultery with a male lover.[11]

The paper awards the Star-Ledger Trophy each year to the number one high school teams in their respective sport in New Jersey.[12]

21st century: financial troubles[edit]

In , George Arwady became the publisher of The Star-Ledger. A graduate of Columbia University, Arwady had previously been the publisher of the Kalamazoo Gazette in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Having worked closely with the Newhouse family for years, Arwady was asked to move to Newark to financially revamp the paper.[13]

Due to financial losses, the paper's parent company Advance Publications announced on July 31, , that it would sell the Star-Ledger unless non-union staff voluntarily left under a buyout offer, and its unionized truck drivers and mailers agreed to concessions.[14] On September 16, publisher George Arwady sent employees an email saying that management felt progress had been made on the buyout and concessions from the mailers, but that management is "far from an agreement with the Drivers' union.".[15] The email continued:[15]

Since it is doubtful that the Drivers will ratify an agreement by October 8, , we will be sending formal notices to all employees this week, as required by both federal and New Jersey law, advising you that the Company will be sold, or, failing that, that it will close operations on January 5,

On October 24, , the newspaper announced that newsroom employees had offered to take the company's buyout offer, and that the company had accepted of them, which resulted in a 40% reduction in newsroom staff.[16]

On January 16, , the newspaper announced the layoffs of 34 employees including 18 newsroom staff.[17]

The Newark headquarters of the Star-Ledger, home to the state's largest newspaper for nearly 50 years, was sold to a New York developer in July , according to a news article released by the paper.[18]

The Star-Ledger, which Vezza said will continue to be published seven days a week, will retain a presence in Newark in leased office space located within the downtown Gateway Center complex, where the publisher, the newspaper's editorial board, its columnists, its magazine staff and a handful of other jobs will be based. Advance Publications, the owner of the newspaper, launched a new media company — NJ Advance Media — in to provide content, advertising and marketing services for its online presence at NJ.com, and many of its New Jersey newspapers out of the offices in Woodbridge.[19] The sales and marketing staffs moved to Woodbridge in June

Prior to Whitmer, James Willse manned the helm from He was appointed following the retirement of year veteran editor Mort Pye. Willse was the former editor and publisher of the New York Daily News. Prior to accepting the Ledger's editorship, Willse headed the review of electronic information options for all Newhouse newspapers. He also expanded the Ledger' use of color and encouraged a more aggressive editorial team. The National Press Foundation named Willse its recipient of the George Beveridge Editor of the Year Award in recognition of Ledger's coverage of racial profiling by the New Jersey State Police.[24]
