Nebraska Newspapers

Omaha World-Herald

The Omaha World-Herald, based in Omaha, Nebraska, is the primary daily newspaper of Nebraska, as well as portions of southwest Iowa. For decades it circulated daily throughout Nebraska, and in parts of Kansas, South Dakota, Missouri, Colorado and Wyoming. In 2008, distribution was reduced to the eastern third of Nebraska and western Iowa. The World-Herald was the largest employee-owned newspaper in the United States. It is the only remaining major metropolitan newspaper in the United States to publish both morning and afternoon editions. The newspaper publishes four daily editions, with three morning editions and one afternoon edition. The World-Herald had for many years been the newspaper with the highest penetration in the United States. The paper’s average circulation is 184, 150 daily and 222,469 on Sundays. The World-Herald has won three Pulitzer Prizes, including the esteemed Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, awarded in 1943.
