Cox Communications® is characterized by many outstanding features, but we like to celebrate our entrepreneurial spirit, and our commitment to education.

He then served three terms as governor of Ohio and eventually ran in the 1920 U.S. presidential election as the Democratic nominee. In that same year, Gov. Cox purchased his first newspaper, the Dayton (OH) Evening News – the first step in creating the company that Cox Enterprises is today – a company with extensive interests in newspapers, television, radio and automobile auctions.
