The Star-Gazette was the first newspaper of the Gannett company. It was founded as the weekly Elmira Gazette in 1828 and became an evening daily in 1856. Frank Gannett bought a half-interest in the newspaper in 1906 to begin what would eventually be Gannett Co., Inc. The following year, he merged the Elmira Gazette with a competitor, the Evening Star, to form the Star-Gazette. The Star-Gazette became a morning publication in 1982.
