Economy:
Coshocton lies in a coal-producing region. The nearby Conesville Power Plant uses this coal to generate power. Strip mining is a by-product of this industry.
In addition, the region has a history of agriculture, with both strawberries and apples available for local picking in summer and fall, respectively.
One of the industries in Coshocton included Shaw-Barton. Other industries included General Electric, the laminated products division; Edmont-Wilson, Pretty Products, Clows, WestRock, and St. Regis. Due to industrial restructuring in the late 20th century, a number of these industries have closed.
Since that period, tourism and water recreation have grown as part of the economy. The area was developed at the confluence of the Tuscarawas and Walhonding rivers, giving rise to the Muskingum River. Lake Park and Forest Hill Lake are nearby. The restored canal, part of the nearby historic Roscoe Village, is another heritage tourism attraction.

Media:
Coshocton is served by two print newspapers, The Coshocton Tribune, a daily, and The Coshocton Beacon, published weekly. Coshocton is also home to WTNS radio, an adult contemporary station operating on FM frequency 99.3, as well as a religious station, WHVY on 89.5.
