The Hartford Times

The Hartford Times was a daily afternoon newspaper serving the Hartford, Connecticut community from 1826 to 1976. It was owned for decades by the Gannett Company which sold the financially struggling paper in 1973 to the owners of the New Haven Register, who failed to turn things around. Several accomplished individuals contributed to the newspaper, including Brit Hume, as a reporter; the television writer Robert Palm; the American painter, James Britton, employed as a staff artist; film critic Lou Lumenick, employed as a reporter and city editor of the Times' short-lived morning edition, The Morning Line; U.S. diplomat and speechwriter Robert Fagan, who worked as a reporter; and editorial cartoonist, Edmund S. Valtman, who won a 1962 Pulitzer Prize for his 1961 cartoon, "What You Need, Man, Is a Revolution Like Mine." The newspaper additionally owned the Hartford radio stations, WTHT-AM 1230 (1936–1954) and WTHT-FM 106.1 (1948–1950) as well as TV station WTHT.

Famous quotes containing the word times:

    These have been wonderful years. How many happy, happy times we have traveled about together! Day and night, in stage coaches, on freight trains, over the mountains and across the prairies, hungry and tired, we have wandered. The work was sometimes hard and discouraging but those were happy and useful years.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
