Columbus Alive (also presented as ALIVE) is a free weekly news publication serving Columbus, Ohio. The newspaper focuses on local music, art, dining, film and culture and is distributed on Thursdays. The publication was acquired by The Columbus Dispatch in the first half of 2006 and the circulation is approximately 55,000. In 2015, the Dispatch was acquired by New Media Investment Group.[1]

Before the paper was sold, the publisher was Sally Crane (of the Crane Plastics family). In the early 2000s, while still operated by Ms. Crane, the paper had significant gay & lesbian, environmental, and political reporting and commentary, including the columns of Harvey Wasserman and Bob Fitrakis.
