The Press-Telegram is a daily newspaper published in Long Beach, California. Tracing its history to 1897, it is published by the Los Angeles Newspaper Group, a division of newspaper conglomerate MediaNews Group, which purchased the newspaper from Knight Ridder in 1997; Ridder and Knight Ridder had owned the paper for 45 years. The paper's longtime home, the Press Telegram building at 6th Street and Pine Avenue, was sold late 2006 to real estate developers intending to convert the property into condominiums. The paper's operations were moved to the Arco Center in downtown Long Beach. The building at 6th Street and Pine Avenue in downtown Long Beach occupied nearly the entire block, and at one time encompassed the entire production of the paper, including the presses, which were formerly visible behind glass windows at street level.

Previously, the paper was known as the Independent-Press-Telegram with the morning Independent. This paper was discontinued in the early 1980s, leaving only the Press-Telegram, previously the paper's evening edition, now published in the morning as the paper's only edition.
