The Midland Reporter-Telegram is a daily newspaper in Midland, Texas. It is located in the heart of the vast 54-county Permian Basin of West Texas, a geological region which produces 70 percent of the oil in Texas. The newspaper's special coverage includes the "Permian Basin Oil Report", a weekly section devoted to news of the gas and oil industry, and, a weekly employment magazine that is free to the community and has a wide distribution throughout the Permian Basin.

The Reporter-News is a Hearst Corporation publication. Hearst also owns other newspapers and media outlets, including the San Francisco Chronicle and the Houston Chronicle. According to Hearst, the Midland newspaper was acquired by the corporation in 1979.

In January 2013, Hearst named Michael Craig Distelhorst as publisher of the Midland Reporter-News and its West Texas companion publications, The Plainview Daily Herald in Plainview, The Canyon News in Canyon, and The Muleshoe Journal in Muleshoe, Texas. Distelhorst replaced David Wedel, who assumed an accounting position for Hearst newspapers in San Antonio. Distelhorst was previously the vice president for advertising at the Amarillo Globe-News in Amarillo, Texas. He formerly was with Hearst at the Greeley Tribune in Greeley, Colorado.[2]

A former Reporter-Telegram staff writer is Patrick Dearen, the husband of managing editor Mary Gilda Dearen. Based in Midland, Dearen writes western novels and history.[3]
