The Greene County Daily World began as a semi-weekly publication in 1905 and was owned by Joe E. Turner. Turner sold his interest in the Daily Call to start a newspaper of his own.
In 1909 the Daily Citizen and the Daily Call were combined and the paper was renamed the Linton Daily Citizen.
The paper was purchased by Rust Communications on Jan. 1, 2003.
On April 1, 2003, Rust Communications purchased The Bloomfield Evening World.
The Linton Daily Citizen and Bloomfield Evening World were published until Jan. 1, 2006 when they were merged into the Greene County Daily World.
