Newspapers in Ohio

Cleveland city

Some 403 newspapers, including 80 dailies, are published regularly in Ohio. The first newspaper published in the region was the Centinel of the North-Western Territory, established in Cincinnati in 1793. The Chillicothe Gazette, established in 1800 as the Scioto Gazette, is the oldest continually published paper in the state.

Ohio is noted for its many fine newspaper publishers and editors. The purchase of the Cleveland Penny Press in 1879 by Edward W. Scripps marked the beginning of the extensive Scripps-Howard chain of newspapers, later headed by Ohio-born Roy W. Howard. John S. Knight, editor of the Akron Beacon Journal, also organized a national newspaper chain.

Among editors and journalists of national note who have been associated with the state are Samuel Medary, Joseph Medill, Charles Merz, Oscar Odd McIntyre, Whitelaw Reid, Willard Kiplinger, and Earl Wilson. The Cleveland Plain Dealer has the largest circulation of all the state’s daily newspapers. Other leading Ohio dailies include the Cincinnati Post, the Columbus Dispatch, the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Toledo Blade, the Akron Beacon Journal, and the Dayton Daily News. The first radio station, WHK in Cleveland, began operations in 1922; the first television station, WEWS-TV in Cleveland, started broadcasting in 1947. In 2002 Ohio was served by 106 AM and 191 FM radio stations and 44 television stations. "Ohio" © Emmanuel BUCHOT, Encarta, Wikipedia
