Ogden Newspapers to buy Nashua Telegraph

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — The Telegraph of Nashua, N.H., is getting a new owner.

The Ogden Newspapers Inc., a family-owned company with 40 daily newspapers in 40 states, has agreed to acquire The Telegraph, publisher Terrence Williams said Monday.

Independent Publications Inc., which has owned The Telegraph since 1977, announced in December that it would sell the newspaper and associated weeklies and websites. Included in the sale are the Cabinet newspapers: the Milford Cabinet, Merrimack Journal, Bedford Journal and the Hollis/Brookline Journal.

The ownership change will take place on April 22, Williams said.

“My family is proud to become the successor publisher of The Telegraph,” Ogden President CEO Robert Nutting told the newspaper. “We are committed to continuing the proud history of a paper which has dutifully served its community for 181 years. We look forward to taking The Telegraph into the future, and continue its award-winning tradition.”

Nutting is incoming chairman of the Newspaper Association of America. His brother, William Nutting, is a member of the Board of Directors of The Associated Press.

Ogden Newspapers was founded in 1890 when H.C. Ogden first published a newspaper in Wheeling, W.Va.

Today, it has holdings in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa, North Dakota, Florida, Hawaii, New York, Virginia, and now New Hampshire.
