Press/Publications/Radio Advertising & Media


Founded by Samuel Bowles, an American journalist from Springfield, Massachusetts, the Weekly Republican began on September 8th, 1824. Surprisingly, the name of the paper had nothing to do with politics at the time, for the Republican Party wasn't founded until 30 years later in 1854. 

The Republican grew rapidly with New England's economy as the Industrial Revolution dominated the region, converting to a daily publication in 1844. In the 1850s and 1860s, The Republican was a go-to source for many Europeans and Americans looking to find out what was occurring in our country during that time. It wasn't until the year 1878 that The Republican decided to publish a Sunday newspaper. 

Since then, generations of families have relied on The Republican for comprehensive local, regional, national and international news coverage, as well as opinion and advertising. We strive to enlighten, educate and entertain readers every day.
