The Star-News was sold to the Los Angeles Newspaper Group in 1996.

Pasadena Star-News in The Hot WarEdit

The Pasadena Star-News interviewed Aaron Finch in the days after he captured one of the Soviet flyers that had atom bombed Los Angeles on March 2, 1951.[1]

Pasadena Star-News in Southern VictoryEdit

The Pasadena Star-News was one of several important Los Angeles area newspapers. It was a relatively balanced newspaper and favored neither side during a series of strikes by the construction workers union. Nevertheless, Chester Martin, one of the founders of the union, preferred to give it interviews rather than the anti-labor Los Angeles Times.

The News, along with the Times, sent a reporter to cover the landmark first contract signed by Martin with Henry T. Casson shortly after the outbreak of the Second Great War.
