Scope and content

The <i>Solomon Star</i> was originally published as a regular Government Information Service newsheet. In 1975 it was turned in to a weekly newspaper called The <i>Solomons News Drum</i>. In mid-1982 it was taken over by five Solomon Islanders and renamed the <i>Solomon Star</i>, and has run as a private newspaper ever since.
