Fort Worth Star-Telegram
In 1909, two rival papers, the Star and the Telegram, joined forces to form a single towering source of local news and information: the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. From its early days, the paper stressed an importance on regional affairs, delivering digests of local news by stagecoach throughout an 84-county area while updating neighbors in its immediate vicinity via paper airplane. The paper has also demonstrated a knack for technological innovation, establishing Fort Worth's first radio station in 1922, the South's first television station in 1948, and one of the first computerized newspaper services in 1982.
Today, the Star-Telegram continues to inform Fort Worth area residents in every way possible, supplying print and online editions of its international and national stories, sports, local coverage, and thought-provoking editorial pages. The paper’s award-winning investigative reporting protects the public through intensive documentation of issues including foreclosure-auction abuses, toxic substances in everyday products, and local schools’ performance records.
