Re: "From 1923 until after World War II, the Star-Telegram had the largest circulation of any newspaper in the South, serving not just Fort Worth but also West Texas, New Mexico, and western Oklahoma." Any source for this? First of all, it's doubtful West Texas and New Mexico would consider themselves part of the south. Second, I highly doubt that the Star-Telegram really sold more copies than the papers in New Orleans, Atlanta, Memphis, or Houston, since those cities were all substantially larger than Fort Worth. And the Star-Telegram had competition from the Fort Worth Press. Perhaps the author means the Star-T's circulation area was geographically larger than other papers, which could be true.

star-telegram circulation . . .[edit]

The ST's circulation (subscriber numbers and papers sold) did exceed all those larger cities you name -- simply because of publisher Amon Carter's determination to make sure that the Star-Telegram was THE dominant newspaper in all parts of Texas west of Ft. Worth. The widespread readership spread beyond Texas as a result. Morning editions were even dropped on rancher's property via airplane. The source for the information is available in longtime Star Telegram writer Jerry Flemmons' fantastic biography about Amon Carter which is listed as a source at the bottom of the page.

I do agree that "the south" is a term that deserves more discussion. Perhaps someone else can comment.


As a resident of Arlington, a suburb in eastern Fort Worth, I can vouch that many college intellectuals at both the University of Texas in Arlington, and the local Tarrant County Community College network refer to the Star Telegram as the "Startlegram". 04:41, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Most people that I know who have grown up and lived in Fort Worth for many years call it the "Startlegram" as well. So why was it taken down? There was no POV problem with the statement. 23:11, 14 September 2007 (UTC)
