The Post is a student-run newspaper in Athens, Ohio, that covers Ohio University and Athens County. It publishes five days a week while the university is in session and distributes 14,000 copies.[2] Though it operates from a university building, the paper remains editorially independent. It is located in the Baker University Center on campus. It launched a new website, thepostathens.com, in August 2014.

History[edit]

The Post was launched in 1912 as the Green and White. The Post is not affiliated with the Scripps College of Communication but offers a way for its students to earn valuable experience.
