The StarPhoenix daily newspaper was created on September 12, 1928, by the merger of the Saskatoon Daily Phoenix (1902) and Daily Star (1906) newspapers. From 1928-1996 it was owned by the Clifford Sifton family. From 1996-2000 it was owned by Hollinger Newspapers, and then by CanWest Global Communications until 2008, when it was acquired by Postmedia.

In its history the newspaper's title heading has appeared in various forms, including Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and Star Phoenix, but the current presentation is StarPhoenix.
