New York World-Telegram

The New York World-Telegram was formed by the 1931 merger of the New York World, formerly owned by Joseph Pulitzer and sold to Scripps-Howard in 1930, and the Evening Telegram. In 1950, it merged with the New York Sun to become the New York World-Telegram and Sun, which in turn merged with the Journal-American and Herald-Tribune in 1966 to become the short-lived New York World-Journal-Tribune, which ceased to exist on May 5, 1967.

The closure of the World-Journal-Tribune left New York City with three newspapers: The New York Times, New York Post, and New York Daily News.
