The Star-Telegram serves Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. It is owned by Chatham Asset Management.
In 1906 founder Amon G. Carter, an advertising salesman in Fort Worth, started a journal called Fort Worth Star. Soon thereafter he purchased his main competitor, the Fort Worth Telegram and a single newspaper emerged, creating a financially stronger paper.
The Star-Telegram launched a radio station and the first television station in the region, WBAP-TV. It claims the oldest online presence nationwide in the form of an early dial-up service called Startext, which became part of the paper in 1982.
The Star-Telegram has won two Pulitzer Prizes.
