It is with heavy hearts that today, we announce the impending closure of the Whitehorse Star, a trusted source of news and information in our community for 124 years.

Over the past several weeks, the owners of the Star have been working with a small group of local residents who were very interested in buying one of the Yukon’s oldest businesses and keeping it alive.

Unfortunately, mutually agreeable terms could not be finalized, and the owners have made the decision to cease publication and operations.

Sustaining operations has become increasingly difficult. Even though we have explored several options, it is no longer feasible to carry on business operations.

Our final edition will be published on Friday, May 17.
