Started as the Manchester Daily Union, the Union Leader grew to be the state’s largest newspaper. Over the past century and a half it has had its challenges- from criticism by some for its conservative slant, to facing the financial struggles of many mid-sized papers. We’re taking a look at the legacy of the Union Leader.
- Joe McQuaid: president and publisher of the Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News
- Charlie Perkins: editor at the Union Leader for almost 30 years and currently managing partner of North Village Media, which does consulting, public relations, and editorial services. Perkins is about to publish a book called New Hampshire: 150 Years.
- Michael Dupre: professor of sociology emeritus at St. Anselm, senior research fellow at NH Institute of Politics and Political Library, specializing in NH politics and political culture.
