About Advance Ohio

Advance Ohio is a dynamic media company that operates cleveland.com, the #1 source of news and information in the state, and Sun News, one of the largest AAM-audited paid weekly chains in the USA. We are responsible for all multimedia ad sales for The Plain Dealer, Sun News, and cleveland.com and are the leading consumer engagement experts in Ohio. Our mission is to tell stories that inspire, engage, and drive change. High-quality journalism and storytelling is at the heart of what we do.

We’re both a marketing agency and publisher, driving daily conversations and engaging millions through stories on our website, newsletters, social channels and print publications.

As part of Advance Local, one of the leading media companies in the US, we also have a deep well of knowledge and resources we employ to provide relevant, innovative and effective marketing solutions for our clients. And, did we mention that we have first-party data on more than 80 million devices owned by consumers of Advance Local’s 12 websites across the US, including Cleveland.com?  That gives us and our advertisers insight into consumer behavior and intent that we can leverage to craft campaigns that deliver on our client’s goals.
