The Post is a student-run newspaper in Athens, Ohio, that covers Ohio University and Athens County. While classes at OU are in session, it publishes online every day and in print every Thursday.[2] Though its newsroom is located in John Calhoun Baker University Center at Ohio University, the paper is editorially independent from the university.

History[edit]

The Post was launched in 1912 as The Green and White.[citation needed]

In 2015, the paper announced it would be moving to a digital-first model. This transition lowered the number of days The Post prints from five times a week to one, though content is published online daily. The paper, previously a broadsheet, was changed to a tabloid. As part of the transition, the paper underwent a redesign and rebranding, including a new logo.[2]
