Episode 16 John Harrigan Inducted into NE Newspaper Hall of Fame

NH Secrets Legends and Lore

John Harrigan has received many honors in his storied 52 year career in journalism. In 2020 he has added one more as the New England Newspaper and Press Association named him to their New England Newspaper Hall of Fame. The Association calls him the quintessential newsman. His column "Woods, Water and Wildlife" has been continuously running for 37 years, one of the longest-running columns in the state of New Hampshire. In this Episode of the New Hampshire Secrets, Legends & Lore podcast, John reflects on the long arc of his career including its beginnings at the Nashua Telegraph and the New Hampshire Sunday News, the tragedy of the mass shooting, in Colebrook, by Carl Drega in 1997, that took the lives of four close friends, including the Editor of one of his newspapers. John himself was only spared because he had been called, at the last minute, to fill in for an employee who had to leave his Lancaster paper - The Coos County Democrat - due to the death of her father. Finally, he recalls a glorious day at Fenway Park with Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey watching the 1967 World Series between the Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.
