The first issue of the Tulsa Daily World appeared on the afternoon of Sept. 14, 1905. The banner across the top of the front page declared: "Tulsa, Chosen Home of Prosperity and Opportunity, is a Busy City in a Busy Universe." The paper cost 5 cents per copy.

The Tulsa World was owned by the Lorton family from 1917 to 2013. Three generations served as publishers of the paper during that time: Eugene Lorton, Maud Lorton, Robert E. Lorton and Robert E. Lorton III. It was purchased by BH Media Group in 2013, which is a Berkshire Hathaway Co. The Tulsa World has been Tulsa's only daily newspaper since the afternoon daily, the Tulsa Tribune, closed in 1992. The World is the second-largest newspaper in Oklahoma. 

Located at 315 S. Boulder Ave., the nine-story building extends through the block to Main Street and covers the entire area between Third and Fourth streets. An entrance on the east side is located on Main Street.
