About this company
Welcome to The Sentinel, a media enterprise whose main goal is to help the 100,000 or so people living in southwestern New Hampshire know what's going on - and what will go on - immediately around them and in the world.
The Sentinel frequently references the past, about which it knows more than a little. The paper was founded by 21-year-old John Prentiss in March, 1799, and it remains one of the oldest news organizations in the country continuously published under the same name.
About 100 people work here, in all sorts of jobs: advertising, printing, news, circulation, online operations, business and so on.
The paper is locally owned, which is a rarity these days. The publisher, Tom Ewing, lives in Keene and occupies the corner office. He, like all the other members of The Sentinel team, are answerable to an enterprise that's been serving the community for more than two centuries. But, acknowledging the public nature of their work, they are also answerable to you.
