Detroit StarDetroit Star – Online Newspaper centering on Detroit
The Detroit Star is essentially a local Detroit newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Detroit, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Detroit, Michigan, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Detroit Star.
The Detroit Lions running back, Reggie Bush, and fiance Lilit Avagyan have become parents for the first time following the birth of their baby daughter on Monday.
Avagyan's rep told Us Weekly in a statement that she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and the newborn weighed in at 8 pounds 9 ounces, the New York Daily News reported.
Bush, who dated Kim Kardashian in the past, said that Avagyan was someone he really loves and cares about.
The 28-year-old football star started dating the dancer, 25, about a year and half ago and confirmed the pregnancy back in October 2012.
Bush expressed his feelings on becoming a father for the first time on the Lions' website in April.
"I'm very excited. Very excited about the baby. It's our first one and couldn't have come at a better time," he shared.
"It couldn't have come with a better person. Someone I really love and care about. It's great. It really worked out perfect," he wrote.(ANI)
