Cincinnati, Ohio is served by one daily newspaper, the Cincinnati Enquirer and six alternative, weekly, and monthly publications. It is home to ten television stations and numerous radio stations.
On July 14, 2006, WIZF ("The Wiz") moved from 100.9 FM to 101.1 FM.
On September 2, 2006, the intellectual property of WMOJ ("Mojo 94.9") was sold from Cumulus Media to Radio One, whose focus is on the African American market. Radio One moved the station format and call letters to 100.3 FM and shifted the format from Rhythmic Oldies to Urban AC. 100.3 had been moved into the Cincinnati market from its former home in Connersville, Indiana.
However, Cumulus Media retained the frequency of 94.9 FM, and changed the call letters to WPRV (now WREW), and temporarily used the frequency to simulcast their WYGY "96.5 The Star".
On November 30, 2007, Entercom officially became the holder of the licenses for the former CBS Radio-owned stations.
On December 14, 2007, Cumulus FM Talker WFTK launched its new format as Active Rock "96 Rock - Cincinnati’s Pure Rock", replacing "SuperTalk". The Two Angry Guys, Richard Skinner and Tom Gamble will remain in mornings.
On February 13, 2008, Clear Channel was ordered by the US Department of Justice to sell two of its Cincinnati radio stations before it could proceed with a planned acquisition by Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners. Clear Channel chose to trade WOFX and WNNF to Cumulus in exchange for stations in Green Bay, Wisconsin. As part of the swap, Cumulus retained the right to repurchase the Green Bay stations from Clear Channel within a five-year period.
On March 14, 2008, Bonneville and Entercom closed on the multi-station trade which had been announced over a year before.
On November 7, 2008, Bonneville swapped frequencies with two of their stations, moving WYGY "The Wolf" to 94.9 FM and WSWD "The Sound" to 97.3 FM.
On May 21, 2009, Bonneville moved WYGY "The Wolf" back to 97.3 FM, and launched a new station "Rewind 94.9" at 94.9 FM. "The Sound" was moved to a digital sideband at 94.9 HD2 and also continues to broadcast online.
Radio 94.1 was rebranded Frequency 94.1 in June 2009.
At 5:00 p.m. on December 6, 2010, WMOJ-FM returned to their jammin' oldies roots, with an upbeat lineup including Michael Jackson, Prince, Aretha Franklin and KC and the Sunshine Band, launching with Michael Jackson's "Rock With You".
In January 2011, WRRM softened their playlist, playing more 70s songs.
On May 20, 2011, WNNF shifted from AAA "Frequency" to an 80s/90s heavy Hot AC format as "Journey 94-1", after stunting with an imaginary "wheel of formats", including an urban AC "Storm" that would have been competition for rhythmic oldie WMOJ-FM.
On August 2, 2011, WRRM added songs by artists such as Adele, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry, OneRepublic, Pink, and The Script to their playlist, despite sister station Journey also playing these artists.
In August 2011, WMKV began simulcasting on 89.9 FM in Butler County.
On September 6, WREW began re-introducing 2000s product, all while still playing 70s.
