The Indianapolis Star is a daily newspaper which began publishing on June 6, 1903.

It began as a morning daily paper in competition with two other Indianapolis dailies, the Indianapolis Journal and the Indianapolis Sentinel, which it eventually took over. In 1948, The Star owner Eugene C. Pulliam purchased rival evening paper the Indianapolis News. In 1999, The News ceased publication, leaving The Star as the only major daily paper in Indianapolis. The Star was acquired by Gannett in 2000, leaving Indianapolis with no locally owned daily newspaper. [2][3]

The Star has won the Pulitzer Prize twice for investigative reporting. In 1975, The Star was honored for its 1974 series on corruption within the Indianapolis Police Department. It was cited again in 1991 for its 1990 series on medical malpractice. The Indianapolis Star also has the largest and most advanced printing presses in the nation. [4] The Pulliam Production Center, which houses the presses, cost a whopping $72 million. There are four presses, each weighing 2,100 lbs., and seven stories high. Each press prints 75,000 papers an hour. With all four presses running, 300,000 papers can be printed in just one hour. The Pulliam Production Center, which is located at 8278 N. Georgetown Road, Indianapolis, IN, allows tours of the facility.
