Truthful news from an independent media company

The Ohio Press Network (OPN) is an Ohio-owned, independent media company founded in 2021 with a mission to uncover the truth in state government and a commitment to deliver it through fact-based news and reporting.

OPN’s deep investigative reports and well-researched news stories give Ohioans an accurate pulse on our government—the politics, policies and people shaping our lives.

Our commentary offers meaningful perspective on issues statewide, nationwide and worldwide. Through our network relationships, you have access to stories produced by other trusted, national media.

All this content is free to you.

OPN was born of the passion of everyday Ohioans who were neither being heard nor given answers to critical questions during tough times.

We are not owned by the government, mega-corporations or lobbyists. We answer to you on the principles of the First Amendment and its guarantee to freedom of speech and a free press.

Your donations and advertising investments are the lifeblood of OPN.
