The Daily Advocate is an American daily newspaper published Monday through Sunday (as The Weekend Advocate) in Greenville, Ohio. It is owned by Civitas Media, LLC, a subsidiary of Versa Capital Management.

The Advocate is the leading newspaper of "Historic Darke County, Ohio", circulating in Greenville and in Ansonia, Arcanum, Bradford, New Madison, Union City and Versailles, Ohio, along with abutting smaller communities, and neighboring Union City, Indiana.[3]

The newspaper was founded by W.A. Browne Sr. as an eight-page weekly newspaper in May 1883.[3] Browne converted it to daily publication around January 1893, as the Daily Advocate.[4]

Browne sold the paper to The Thomson Corporation, a Canadian publisher, which later sold it to Brown Publishing Company in 1996.[5]

Brown, a Cincinnati-based family business, declared bankruptcy and was reconstituted as Ohio Community Media in 2010.[6] The company, including the Daily Advocate, was purchased for an undisclosed sum in 2011 by Philadelphia-based Versa Capital Management.[7]
