Kingston is home to two daily newspapers, the Jamaica Gleaner ( and the Jamaica Observer (, and a weekly, the Sunday Herald (www.sunheraldja,com), all of which are distributed island-wide. The Gleaner was the island’s first daily and is considered the paper of record; it also publishes Jamaica Star, the entertainment daily where you’ll find the latest gossip on feuds between recording artists. The Star also publishes the advice column, "Dear Pastor," and photos of partygoers from Kingston’s happening nightlife scene, as well as the occasional candid camera shots of people caught off guard for laughs. The Observer was established by Sandals chairman Gordon "Butch" Stewart to counter the overwhelming media force behind Oliver Clarke’s Gleaner, which rarely smiles on the Sandals boss in its copy. The Observer has its version of the Star, the entertainment tabloid, Chat!.
