Fort Worth Star-Telegram

We are a legacy news organization with a well-known name and brand in Fort Worth, dating back to our founding in the early 1900s in a city that proudly says it is "Where the West begins." Our goal is to be first and best with breaking news in Fort Worth and Tarrant County and for non-breaking news reporters to be heavily driven by enterprise and accountability reporting, rather than turn-of-the-screw process reporting.
