Along with producing digital content daily, The Post also publishes a weekly print tabloid each Thursday classes at OU are in session. The tabloid is distributed at more than 150 locations in uptown Athens and on Ohio University’s campus.

The Post has been recognized with multiple awards from the Ohio News Media Association, including the Frank E.
