History

In 1905 Joe E. Turner sold his interest in the Linton Daily Call and began his own semi-weekly newspaper, the Linton Citizen. In 1909 this absorbed the Linton Daily Call, becoming the Linton Daily Citizen. This became the dominant newspaper in Linton.

In 2003 both the Linton Daily Citizen and the neighbouring Bloomfield Evening World were purchased by Rust Communications. The newspapers were merged to become The Daily World in January 2006. In January 2007 this was renamed the Greene County Daily World.
