In reality, the first three were spent building the infrastructure, the next three developing and growing our wonderful team and the last two truly establishing ourselves as a part of the local media landscape and as one of the best, independent online media companies in the country. But, I digress.
“Conversation” isn’t a term that you’ll hear many old-school media use when discussing their products. Media is no longer a sermon, although far too many “newspaper people” think it is. Media, today, is a conversation. You react to our stories; you talkback with our exclusive talkback system and soon you’ll be able to submit your own Milwaukee content. We’re all Milwaukeeans, and news is everywhere. Why should we tell you what happened or is happening when you very well may know better?
Sure, as we voyage into our ninth year, OnMilwaukee.com will continue to provide amazing and original content. Our sports staff is now the best in the market, and our music, business and entertainment coverage has never been better.
We are enjoying record readership, record advertising and sponsorship. We have many new announcements on the horizon, and expect continued growth, innovation and expansion. And, to the amazement of many (though not us), we are doing this all in right here in Milwaukee.
Google “Milwaukee,” will you? OnMilwaukee.com ranks second or third, right behind the entity that markets the area, Visit Milwaukee. Not bad -- actually quite amazing -- for such a young organization.
On behalf of everyone here at OMC, we thank you for your passionate readership, friendship, compliments and even occasional criticisms. We get up every day and work to build community and grow our business. We have a blast and are blessed to be able to do what we do.
I’ll be using this space occasionally to update you on our company, our growth and our industry. It’s an exciting time for media, and we are proud to be leading the charge in our hometown.

"Nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man's character give him power." -Abraham Lincoln PEACE!

The Zac Brown Band may be the closest to a true definition of a current day Summerfest mainstay as you can get. Their cross genre approach has wide appeal and while firmly anchored in their traditions and heritage the band is constantly evolving, taking risks and adding sounds, personality and styles.
