Newspaper's Website

"The Tyler Morning Telegraph has been in publication since 1929, but the newspaper has its roots in the 19th century. From almost the very founding of Tyler and Smith County, there has been a local newspaper to keep residents advised of happenings of the day, community leaders and events shaping history. The company traces its roots to 1877 when two brothers, L. M. Green and J. P. Green, established the weekly Courier. The Courier was converted to a daily newspaper in 1882. A public stock subscription in 1906 helped pave the way for the consolidation of the Daily Courier and another local newspaper, the Weekly Times, creating The Tyler Courier-Times, Tyler's longtime afternoon newspaper. In 1910, a fire destroyed the production facility, forcing the newspaper to temporarily print in a job shop using paper not much larger than letterhead stationery.

Following the fire, the newspaper was acquired by Thomas Booker Butler Nov. 18, 1910. Shortly after the fire, the newspaper began operating at 215 N. College Ave., where it had better access to the rail transportation that delivered printing paper. The Tyler Morning Telegraph, which featured expanded coverage of East Texas cities, debuted Nov. 14, 1929. The Courier-Times continued to focus on Tyler news for subscribers within the city limits. The Sunday edition was renamed the Tyler Courier-Times-Telegraph. Facing a demand for more space to accommodate growth, the company moved in 1950 to its present location, 410 W. Erwin St."
