ACTIVE COMMUNICATIONS, INC.

ACTIVE COMMUNICATIONS, INC., is the publisher of two tabloids, the Active Voice and the Weekly Farce. The company was founded in 1988 by two brothers in their 20s, Ken and Ron McEntee, both graduates of Berea High School. The Weekly Farce, introduced in Feb. 1988, is a publication devoted entirely to local and national humor, spoofing current news, politics, sports, and media. All of the material is original and is written by the two brothers. In spite of its title, it is published monthly. The Active Voice is billed as a "forum for free speech," an "unedited and uncensored soundstage." It is comprised of submissions and contains such items as opinion pieces, news, short fiction, poetry, and historical articles. Located in BEREA, Active Communications, Inc., reported circulation of its combined papers at approx. 10,000 per month in 1995.
