Corporate Profile

Dix 1898 is a fifth generation, family-owned business that was established by bringing print news, marketing and advertising opportunities to the communities we served. It was established in Wooster, OH and grew to include print, television and radio media properties.

In the past 10 years Dix has transitioned the business by selling its print and television properties, retaining its Wooster, Ohio broadcasting holdings, and adding an advertising agency (FSM) and two architectural woodworking companies.
