Dates of existence
The Saskatoon Star Phoenix was created in 1928 by the merger of the Saskatoon Daily Star (established in 1906 as the Capital) and the Saskatoon Phoenix (estalished in 1902 as the Phenix). Both were originally weeklies.
The newspapers were purchased by Clifford Sifton on January 1, 1928, and the combined newspaper began publication on September 12. In 1996, the paper was sold to Hollinger Newspapers, and then to CanWest Global Communications, becoming part of the Southam Newspapers division, in 2000, and later to Postmedia.
