Dayton City Paper Changes Owners

...late yesterday we received word that longtime Dayton City Paper publisher Kerry Farley had sold his interest in the paper to Therapy Cafe owner, Medhi Adineh. According to our source at the DCP, "Kerry is quite confident in his decision for Medhi is a huge fan of the [Dayton City] Paper and its artistic mission." As one of the few media outlets in Dayton, the Dayton City Paper (and it's previous incarnations as The Dayton Voice and Impact Weekly) has long provided ample coverage to the local music scene. Let's hope that trend continues under the new ownership...

Aaaaargh. Because people who dont know anything about running a BAR surely must be capable of doing likewise with any number of other businesses.

Sitting around with the previous owners awhile back we all agreed that we didnt think it was actually possible for the service at Therapy to have gotten WORSE than when they owned it, sadly it has. Hopefully the City Paper wont suffer accordingly, while its been through some huge ups and downs it's always been a nice constant in town.

All that being said, with the ridiculous rates they've charged of late for ads Therapy was paying (based on incredibly inflated readership counts) it mightve been cheaper to simply purchase the paper.

i would like to know how the DCP get away with their ad rates, its cheaper to advertise in a glossy then a local weekly.

now's the time to buy into an outdated format like a newspaper; my money's all tied up in 8-track cassettes & i'm wondering why the milkman never stops here anymore...
