TOP 10 ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS OF INDIA – THE TELEGRAPH
The Telegraph is a Kolkata based newspaper started in 1982. In the eastern region of India, The Telegraph is the fastest growing newspaper. It publishes news about sports, business, education, politics, lifestyle, entertainment etc. It is owned by Ananda Bazar Patrika Limited, Kolkata.
The Telegraph is also published from Guwahati, Siliguri, Jamshedpur and Ranchi City. The Telegraph has also introduced a sixteen page coloured section called T2 that is primarily devoted to entertainment and lifestyle, which appears from Monday to Sunday.
The Telegraph and Courier was founded by Colonel Arthur B. Sleigh in June 1855 to air a personal grievance against the future Commander-in-chief of the British Army, Prince George, Duke of Cambridge. Joseph Moses Levy, the owner of The Sunday Times, agreed to print the newspaper, and the first edition was published on 29 June 1855. It was not a success, and Sleigh was unable to pay Levy the printing bill. Levy took over the newspaper, his aim being to produce a cheaper newspaper than his main competitors in London, the Daily News and The Morning Post to expand the size of the overall market.
