The North Adams Transcript is a daily newspaper, published Monday through Saturday in North Adams, Massachusetts.
Branded as "The Voice of the Northern Berkshires Since 1843," the Transcript covers North Adams and Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Hancock, Lanesborough, New Ashford, and Williamstown, Massachusetts; and Pownal and Stamford, Vermont.
In 1896, the Transcript was bought by the Hardman family; 80 years later, co-publishers (and brothers) James Jr. and Robert Hardman sold it to The Boston Globe, which turned it over to Ingersoll Publications Inc. in 1979. Then, in 1989, Ingersoll sold the paper to the American Publishing Company (later Hollinger International).
MediaNews Group, through its subsidiary Garden State Newspapers, acquired the paper from Hollinger in 1996 as part of a 10-newspaper trade involving properties from four other states. The purchase allowed MediaNews to deepen its ties to Western Massachusetts, where it had already bought The Berkshire Eagle the year before.
Journalist Daniel Pearl got his start at the "Transcript" in the late 1980s before going to the Wall Street Journal in 1990.
