Cheshire Herald History


The Cheshire Herald was founded in 1953 by Howard and Ruth True.

In the inaugural editorial of the Feb. 4, 1953, issue, Mr. True shared his vision for the newspaper:
"The columns of this newspaper will be open for the legitimate use of its readers and it is hoped that The Herald will become a medium for the expression of independent thought, that it will be used for the dissemination of information pertaining to town affairs, that it will become a force for good in the community," Mr. True penned.

Fifty-five years later, the staff of The Cheshire Herald is still guided by Mr. True's philosophies and ideologies. As one of the few remaining independently owned news organizations, we are committed to providing quality coverage of the events and issues that shape our community, while providing a forum for readers and their thoughts and interests.

On a weekly basis, in addition to local news coverage, we devote an entire section to our blue-ribbon public school system and our nationally acclaimed sports programs. We also cater to our local business community with a special "business happenings" page each week.

With a paid circulation of over 5,900 -- nearly every home in Cheshire -- The Herald is an estimable advertising vehicle. In fact, our circulation numbers far exceed those of any of the daily newspapers with paid circulations in town. Compare our rates, you'll find us to be extremely competitive and reasonable.

We publish every Thursday and look forward to working with you to develop an effective ad campaign that meets your company's needs. We have been entrusted to continue the excellence The Herald committed to over 50 years ago and appreciate the opportunity you afford us to do so.
