The purpose of The Cleveland Standard is to offer honest and stimulating coverage of what’s happening in Cleveland, Ohio.
More often than not, the national media seems to overlook the City of Cleveland and is often a punchline across multiple platforms. As a result, the voice and perspective of true Clevelanders is underrepresented and lost to all except the most loyal and interested.
From a true Cleveland point-of-view, The Cleveland Standard will attempt to bring attention to that voice by covering a range of topics from major headlines to politics, from sports to random tidbits from across the region.
Cody Thomas, a Cleveland area native, launched The Cleveland Standard in January 2013. Born and raised in the southwest suburb of North Olmsted, only minutes from downtown, Cody’s main interests are local and national politics and Cleveland sports. He graduated Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Advertising/Public Relations.
