Who is The PRESS CLUB of CLEVELAND?

For 127 years, The Press Club of Cleveland has provided a place for journalists, public relations, corporate communications, marketing and advertising professionals to gather and exchange ideas.


The Press Club of Cleveland continues to promote excellence in journalism, educate future journalists and maintain the rich history of journalism in Cleveland. Provocative and informative programming is scheduled throughout the year with discounts offered to Press Club members. The Press Club of Cleveland sponsors the Excellence in Journalism competition and the Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame induction ceremonies each year.

The Press Club would like to thank our Corporate Partners, whose sponsorship helps to make our club viable and our programming possible:


FirstEnergy is a diversified energy company dedicated to safety, reliability and operational excellence. Its 10 electric distribution companies form one of the nation's largest investor-owned electric systems, serving customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland and New York. Its generation subsidiaries currently control nearly 18,000 megawatts of capacity from a diversified mix of scrubbed coal, non-emitting nuclear, natural gas, pumped-storage hydro and other renewables. FirstEnergy is headquartered in Akron Ohio.



Founded in 1934, Medical Mutual of Ohio is the oldest and largest health insurance company based in Ohio. Now in its 80th year, the company has served customers with high-quality, affordable group and personal health insurance plans, and third-party administrative services to self-insured group customers. As a mutual health insurance company, Medical Mutual is unique in that it operates for the benefit of its members. Unlike publicly-traded insurance companies that must maximize their financial return, Medical Mutual does not answer to stockholders or Wall Street analysts.  For more information, visit the company’s award-winning Web site at www.MedMutual.com.
