The Toledo Free Press is a weekly newspaper in Toledo, Ohio. It was founded in March 2005 by Thomas Pounds, a veteran administrator of daily newspapers in Toledo and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On March 10, 2010, the paper added a Wednesday edition called the Toledo Free Press STAR, that is available only at newsstands throughout Northwest Ohio. The second edition focuses "on local arts and sports with a comprehensive calendar of events." [1]

The paper blends investigative journalism, commentary, and local news and features in a tabloid format, concentrating on covering news often missed by the other periodicals in the area.

In May 2010, Toledo Free Press started offering digital "e-PRESS" versions of both editions of its paper via Issuu. As of Nov. 6, more than 50 editions have been uploaded, with documents views totaling more than 30,000.[2]

In December 2006, the paper announced it was moving its distribution day from Wednesday to Sunday. From its initial circulation of 30,000, the paper has a 2014 circulation of 72,000, with 57,000 free home delivered.[3]
