Cox Media Group Ohio
Cox Media Group Ohio is rooted in innovation, positioned at the forefront of media in the region and in Ohio. CMG Ohio began in 1898, when James M. Cox purchased the Dayton Evening News, which eventually became the Dayton Daily News. Cox’s success with the newspaper led him into public service, becoming Ohio’s first three-term governor and the 1920 Democratic nominee for president of the U.S. Cox eventually focused his attention on growing his media business. In 1935, Cox started Ohio’s first radio station, WHIO, just as radio was gaining widespread popularity. In 1949, he began WHIO-TV, the first television station in the Miami Valley. Over time, the business expanded to include not only traditional media, but communications and automotive services. Today, CMG Ohio is part of the Cox Media Group Inc. subsidiary which consists of broadcasting, publishing, direct marketing and digital media. CMG Ohio honors James M. Cox’s legacy of innovation by continually redefining the media landscape. Today, CMS Ohio leads the industry in media convergence — with a multi-platform collaboration among print, broadcast and digital outlets for the delivery of news, information and entertainment that matters most to its readers, listeners, viewers and advertising partners.
