HUDSON – A new publisher took the helm of The Telegraph this week.

Gregory J. Pohl, formerly a regional manager for Ogden Newspapers, assumed the publisher position Monday as the ownership change formally took effect.

Telegraph officials announced earlier this month that the paper, the Nashua region’s only daily, would be sold to Ogden, a family-owned company with 41 daily newspapers in 13 states.

Ogden officials quickly tabbed Pohl as the paper’s new chief executive, succeeding outgoing Publisher Terrence L. Williams, who held the position for 19 years.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to become publisher of The Telegraph,” Pohl said last week as he prepared for the ownership change. “It’s an
historic newspaper that has recorded the happenings of the greater Nashua area and beyond for nearly 200 years.”

Pohl, a Chicago native, began his career in newspapers in 1968 as a copyboy in the newsroom of the Chicago Tribune. Following a stint in the Navy, he returned to the Tribune in 1973, working in the research, advertising, marketing and circulation departments.

In the following years, Pohl moved on to a number of other newspapers and publishing groups. He joined Ogden nearly 10 years ago where he has led the company’s circulation and distribution departments, among other assignments.

“Greg Pohl brings an abundance of newspaper industry knowledge to The Telegraph,” said Robert M. Nutting, president and chief executive officer of Ogden Newspapers and Ogden Newspapers of New Hampshire, The Telegraph’s new owners. “We are happy to offer him the opportunity to publish one of New England’s best newspapers.”

At The Telegraph, Pohl will oversee a paper that has been honored for its journalism and its community efforts.

In recent years, the paper was won several Newspaper of the Year awards, among other honors. And earlier this year, The Telegraph was named Business of the Year by the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce.

“The Telegraph has a great staff that enjoys its role as south New Hampshire’s leading media source for news and advertising,” said Pohl, who has frequently served on local boards and community associations, including local chambers of commerce, planning commissions and the United Way, among others. “I look forward to working with this team to move the newspaper and its associated websites and digital projects into the future.”
