The Tulsa World is the daily newspaper for the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is the primary newspaper for the northeastern and eastern portions of Oklahoma, and is the second-most widely circulated newspaper in the state, after The Oklahoman. It was founded in 1905, and for its first 108 years, it was locally owned. For the last 96 of those years, it was owned by the Lorton family of Tulsa. The newspaper's circulation has dropped slightly in recent years and the staff reduced. The newspaper shares some editorial content with The Oklahoman. In February 2013 the paper announced that it would be sold to Berkshire Hathaway's BH Media Group, controlled by Warren Buffett.
In the early 1900s, the World fought an editorial battle in favor of building a reservoir on Spavinaw Creek, in addition to opposing the Ku Klux Klan in the 1920s. The paper was jointly operated with the Tulsa Tribune from 1941 to 1992. Source
