On August 15, 1898, James M. Cox purchased the Dayton Evening News. One week later, he renamed it the Dayton Daily News. The paper has been a Cox Enterprises company since the very beginning, and a digital pioneer for more than 20 years.

And while Dayton’s media landscape has changed drastically since then, our commitment to our advertisers and providing complete, in-depth and dependable coverage to our readers has never faltered.


More than ever, we deliver valuable and engaged audiences with the purchasing power to grow your business, backed by the power of Cox Enterprises .
