Star-Telegram Moves to New HQ

Star-Telegram

For the first time in 90 years, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a new headquarters.

Fort Worth energy magnate and Texas Rangers co-chairman Bob Simpson takes over the downtown building that had served as the newspaper's home from 1921.

Sampson has been praised for buying and restoring several historic buildings in downtown Fort Worth.

Meanwhile, the newspaper moved its newsroom and offices over the weekend from the home built by founder Amon G. Carter to five floors of the former Commerce Building down the street. Ironically, the newly renamed 19-story Star-Telegram Building is across the street from the site of the newspaper's original headquarters replaced by the 1921 building.

The newspaper's presses had been moved to the southern part of the city in the 1980s.
