The "Telegram & Gazette" (and "Sunday Telegram") is Worcester, Massachusetts's only daily newspaper. The paper, known locally as "the Telegram" or the "T & G" is owned by the Worcester Telegram & Gazette Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of The New York Times Company (publisher of "The New York Times" and "The Boston Globe").

It offers coverage of all of Worcester County, as well as surrounding areas of the western suburbs of Boston, Western Massachusetts, and several towns in Windham County in northeastern Connecticut.

History

Until the 1980s, two papers — the "Worcester Telegram" in the morning and the "Evening Gazette" in the afternoon — were published by the same company, with separate editorial staffs in some departments. The two were merged into a single "Telegram & Gazette" upon their acquisition by Chronicle Publishing Company, publishers of the "San Francisco Chronicle", in 1986. Chronicle sold the "Telegram & Gazette" to The New York Times Company in 1999.

The paper's previous owners also held Worcester radio station WTAG until selling it after the newspapers were divested, in 1987.

Sections and features

The weekday "Telegram" prints five sections: news, local, sports, business, and a feature section ("Health" on Monday, "People" on Tuesday and Friday, "Food" on Wednesday, and "Time Out" on Thursday).

On the front page of the local section, two staff commentators alternate "metro columns": Dianne Williamson and Clive McFarlane. The paper's regular reporters also contribute regular or occasional columns with names such as "Worcester Diary," "Politics and the City," "South County Notebook," "Wachusett Watch," etc. The local news section also includes local news stories and obituaries.

"Montachusett T&G" also publishes on Thursdays.

All editorials and letters to the editor appear in the regional opinion and op-ed pages of the main news section.

The "Sunday Telegram" includes the county's largest classified ad listing, News, Local and Editorial pages, the "Etc." local arts section, Homes and Cars sections, and two sections reprinted in full from "The Boston Globe": "Arts & Entertainment" and "Travel." The "Telegram" also reprints some other "Globe" special sections, such as the annual skiing season preview.

Other publications

The Worcester Telegram & Gazette Corporation owns Coulter Press, which publishes several weekly newspapers in suburban towns northeast and east of Worcester. The "Telegram" staff also puts out "Worcester Living" (formerly "Worcester Quarterly"), a local lifestyle magazine. Before their sale to Community Newspaper Company in 1993, the "T&G" also owned the "Hudson Sun" and "Marlboro Enterprise" daily newspapers and Beacon Communications Corporation weekly newspapers in western Middlesex County, Massachusetts.
