Hull's hometown news source since 1930

Since its founding as The Hull Nantasket-Times on June 26, 1930, the paper has been owned and operated by Hull residents for Hull residents. We are one of the few independent weekly newspapers in Massachusetts that has not been gobbled up by a media conglomerate. 

Susan Ovans owns The Hull Times and edits and publishes the paper. Her husband, Roger Jackson, is the Times’ business manager. Most of our personnel have Hull roots, too.  

The fact that we live and work here means that we experience the same joys and the same challenges as our neighbors. We really are all in this together.  

From town hall to local coffee shops, when Hull people refer to “the paper,” they’re talking about the Times. At all times, we strive to be an accurate and comprehensive reflection of the community we serve, in all its diversity. 

We welcome our readers’ views and news, in print and online. Directions for how to submit material to us is listed under various categories on the left sidebar of this website.
