Toledo Free Press moving to weekend delivery, expanding free service to 150,000 casas


Toledo, Jan. 9, 2007: Thomas F. Pounds, president/publisher of the Toledo Free Press, has announced that Toledo Free Press, a weekly newspaper completing its second year in publication in mid-March, is moving its distribution day from Wednesday to a Saturday/Sunday edition and increasing circulation to 150,000 copies, the majority of which will be delivered free to single-family homes in Lucas County, Ohio, effective January 26-27, 2007.

According to Pounds, this will give Toledo Free Press more copies in its distribution area (Lucas, northern Wood, and southern Monroe counties) than any print publication in northwest Ohio.


The move will give Toledo Free Press access to nearly 400,000 readers, Pounds said, speaking from the newspaper’s recently purchased building at 605 Monroe Street, adjacent to Fifth Third Field, Toledo.


“Our advertisers have asked us to reach the largest possible audience with our ‘glass half full’ message, while remaining a free publication,” Pounds said. “Our distribution system will allow weekend delivery by Sunday morning with 150,000 copies, a 500-percent circulation increase.”


Pounds said the move will allow the paper’s editorial content to encompass a wider range of community, business, sports, and arts news.


Pounds works closely with his wife and TFP’s vice president, Kay T. Pounds, who hails from Harlingen, Texas.


“This is why we use the Texas Lone Star as our logo,” said both Pounds.


Michael S. Miller is the newspaper’s Editor-in-Chief.


The Toledo Free Press recently added Andrea Rodríguez-Ahls as part of its graphics department. Ms. Ahls is the daughter of Simon Rodríguez
