Outside the halls of local media outlets, there are people who actually like Dayton. Phil Herzing was living in NY looking for a place to move to build his business in Ohio, and after comparing all the major cities he decided on Dayton. Once here, he was amazed to hear the lack of pride displayed by the locals.

Phil decided to do something to battle the negativity- by teaming up with Exit Row Productions he started filming short segments on Dayton businesses and why they love Dayton. He’s put these videos up at and has been producing about 2-3 videos per week. Now before you go all pessimistic Daytonian on him- no, he’s not charging to do these, he does them for free.

Go take a look, then write Phil at [email protected]

Now, if only the local media would get a hint. Yes, there are people who like Dayton- actually living  in Dayton.
