History[edit] The current-day Globe-News is a combination of several newspapers published in Amarillo. One began on November 4, 1909, as a prohibition publication by the Baptist deacon Dr. Joseph Elbert Nunn (1851 – 1938). In 1916, Nunn turned the Amarillo Daily News into a general newspaper. Nunn also owned an electric company, and heavily invested in the telephone company.[which?] He served on the boards of the Wayland Baptist College (now Wayland Baptist University) in Plainview, Texas, then at Texas Technological College (now Texas Tech University). He went on to Lubbock, Texas, with the Goodnight Baptist College in the now ghost town of Goodnight in Armstrong County. The college and town were named for the legendary Texas Panhandle rancher Charles Goodnight.[2] In 1926, Eugene A. Howe and Wilbur Clayton Hawk bought the Amarillo Daily News and merged it with their Globe newspaper to form the Amarillo Globe-News Publishing Company. The Amarillo Times started on December 15, 1937, as an afternoon tabloid newspaper. On December 2, 1951, the Globe-News and Times were merged into one company with the majority of the stock owned by the Times' Roy Whittenburg family, being published by Samuel Benjamin Whittenburg (1914 – 1992). The Daily News continued as the morning newspaper, while the Globe-News and Times were merged into the afternoon Globe-Times. The Amarillo Globe-Times won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for exposing government corruption in Potter and Randall counties.[3] The organization noted the paper "expos[ed] a breakdown in local law enforcement with resultant punitive action that swept lax officials from their posts and brought about the election of a reform slate."[4] The company also purchased radio stations WDAG and KRGS (merging them to form KGNC in 1935),[5] and NBC television station KGNC-TV (now KAMR) in 1953.[6] On September 1, 1972, Morris Communications bought the Globe-News from the Whittenburg family.[7] In 2001, the Daily News and Globe-Times merged into one morning edition, the Globe-News.[8] In 2017, Morris Communications sold its newspapers to GateHouse Media.[9]


Journalists[edit] Journalists who got their start at the Amarillo Globe-News include National Journal Correspondent Major Garrett and Dow Jones Newswires columnist Al Lewis. Nelson Clyde III, prominent publisher of the Tyler Morning Telegraph from 1990 until his death in 2007, worked at the Globe-News from 1966-1968. Charles E. Maple, a journalist and chamber of commerce official, worked at the Globe-News as police and fire reporter at the start of his career in the middle 1950s.[10]
