Telegraph of Nashua

The Telegraph of Nashua is a daily newspaper in Nashua, New Hampshire. 2003 circulation was ~27,000 daily, and ~34,000 on Sunday. The corporation was founded in 1869 and is the second-largest newspaper within the state.

The paper received some attention during the 1980 presidential primary, when it hosted a debate, paid for by Ronald Reagan. During a debate over which candidates should be allowed to participate, editor Jon Breen, acting as moderator, told the soundman to turn off Reagan's microphone. Reagan's response, "I paid for this microphone, Mr. Green!" entered the political lexicon and, some say, launched his successful run for office. The fact that Reagan got the editor's name wrong is often forgotten.
