Toledo Free Press
The Toledo Free Press is a weekly newspaper in Toledo, Ohio. It was founded in March 2005 by Thomas Pounds, a veteran administrator of daily newspapers in Toledo and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On March 10, 2010, the paper added a Wednesday edition called the Toledo Free Press STAR, that is available only at newsstands throughout Northwest Ohio. The second edition focuses "on local arts and sports with a comprehensive calendar of events." 
In May 2010, Toledo Free Press started offering digital "e-PRESS" versions of both editions of its paper via Issuu. As of Nov. 6, more than 50 editions have been uploaded, with documents views totaling more than 30,000.
In December 2006, the paper announced it was moving its distribution day from Wednesday to Sunday. From its initial circulation of 30,000, the paper has a 2014 circulation of 72,000, with 57,000 free home delivered.
On April 27, 2015, the paper announced its closure, citing legal troubles and ad pricing.   The legal troubles undoubtedly include an ongoing lawsuit from 2011 by The Blade against the Toledo Free Press's publisher, Thomas F. Pounds, citing breach of contract by Mr. Pounds in his "Separation Agreement" with "The Blade" (his former employer).
The newspaper continued to publish to its website (no longer accessible) and its Facebook page, until May 14, 2015.
