We’re a full-size bi-weekly newspaper that’s built a trusted reputation for over 80 years, having been in business and good standing in the same community since 1938. People know our name and trust The Omaha Star as a primary source of information and quality content. We carry local community and regional news, including national news stories that are important to everyone in the community.
From a historical standpoint at one point it was vitally necessary that we promote ourselves as a black-owned newspaper, considering the climate and decade in which Ms. Mildred Brown struck out and single-handedly started the paper. Today, it’s a matter of pride in that, after all this time, her vision and goals are still manifesting through the paper which was to get the news out to the entire Omaha community. In April 2019, the Mildred D. Brown Memorial Study Center, the nonprofit founded in 2008 by Ms. Brown’s niece and the Omaha Star’s second publisher Dr. Marguerita Washington, purchased the assets of the Omaha Star from the Ms. Brown and Ms. Washington’s descendants, to continue the operations of the Omaha Star into the future.
We are all-inclusive and welcoming of all citizens of the Greater Omaha Community.
The Omaha Star is a historical newspaper, continuing to build presence in the Omaha community by providing relevant information and affordable advertising to the local Omaha community.
We’re a trusted source of media in the Omaha community and we’re part of a greater media network that shares information regionally and nationally. as a founding member of the National Newspaper Publishers Association. We’re able to offer personalized service and give you the attention and account management necessary to address your advertising needs.
We look forward to working with you.
