The newspaper was renamed The Meridian Star in 1915 and has served as the city's only daily newspaper since 1921. Currently owned by Community Newspaper Holdings Inc. of Birmingham, Ala., The Meridian Star publishes seven days a week. The newspaper converted from evening to morning delivery in early 2005.
