Our Story

"Creative. Community. Connected. That’s OnMilwaukee.com."

inthecommunityIt began as a passion to make Milwaukee a better place through quality journalism and story telling. That passion evolved to a desire to do new media better, locally and nationally through unique partnerships.

We know how to monetize digital content. From day one, it’s been our sole focus as we’ve built a strong, profitable independent media group. Backed by an energized team and experienced investors, we eat, sleep and breathe digital all day and all night.

Today, as a full-service digital media company, OnMilwaukee stays true to its mission to “Make great media and move Milwaukee forward,” while always fostering a culture of community-building that stems from proven business tactics engrained in entrepreneurial-minded team that leads instead of follows.

OnMilwaukee leverages its personality-driven local entertainment and sports content, breaking news and curated time-tested journalism, to drive traffic, loyalty and engagement. Our success, both in traffic and in profitably, continues to grow. footer-wireframe What’s next for OnMilwaukee? There’s more room to expand within in this market, but we’re also looking to grow nationally in a consultative capacity. More than 20 years ago, we built our unique playbook out of necessity – but it’s fully scalable, too.

Our company was born in a world before Facebook, Google and Twitter. Moving agilely, we’ve continued to reinvent ourselves alongside them. You’ll never meet a smarter, more dedicated group of passionate professionals than when you walk in our doors. Each of us works every day to tackle the next challenge with our signature style.
