Press Club luncheon speeches may be found on our YouTube channel at–BT-oGL-w

This archive is offered as a public service by the Press Club for those who may have missed a luncheon speech or those who want to revisit a speech.

This Press Club video archive is made possible through the work of Chris Miller of the Akron Community Foundation’s Akron Digital Media Center.


The Akron Press Club was founded in 1971 to promote a free press and serve local journalists and public relations professionals. The group has a rich heritage of offering newsmakers a forum to discuss issues of the day at Press Club luncheons and speaking events that are open to the public. The club also funds scholarships for journalists and public relations students and sponsors annual fundraising and community outreach events.
