Congratulations to The Kenner Star on it's 26th Year

The Kenner Star, the city of Kenner’s only hometown newspaper, will celebrate its 25th anniversary during the month of July 2017. “The Kenner Star has always been a free newspaper reporting on the city’s progress over the last 25 years,” said Candy Lovitt, Kenner Star managing editor and marketing director. “The Kenner Star has been dedicated to informing Kenner residents about local community, civic, charitable and governmental events occurring in the city and will continue to do so.

The support of our advertisers enables us to bring the Kenner Star to our readers and we sincerely thank them for helping us provide our newspaper for Kenner residents to enjoy.” The Kenner Star’s unique method of distribution, mailing a free copy each month to every registered voter household in Kenner, includes a mailed circulation of almost 20,000. “We thank our loyal readers who have responded very affirmatively to the Kenner Star. We promise to continue to provide community news, government updates and information that is enlightening, educational and interesting every month,” said Lovitt. “Local business owners and professionals contribute columns each month to the Kenner Star providing our readers with information relevant to them and our local area.

Our goal has always been to help businesses and business owners who have invested in Kenner and we urge our residents to shop and patronize those advertisers.” The Kenner Star, a privately owned company published by Kenner Star, Inc., converted to a monthly publication in 1993, has always been mailed free to all registered voter households in Kenner and is also distributed to about 100 pickup locations throughout the city.
