Evolution of College Newspapers: What Does it Mean For Future of Journalism Programs?

This fall, Audrey Fletcher will take the reins of Kent State's award-winning student newspaper as editor. For as long as she's known, the Daily Kent Stater's gone to press five days a week. But this coming school year, the Stater will drop "daily" from its nameplate and print only three days a week.

"Initially, we were all kind of hesitant and nervous about it because we were so used to having it five days," said Fletcher, a 20-year-old Canton native and magazine journalism major. "As journalists, we all love print."

Soon, the newspaper will appear on newsstands on and around campus only Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with fresh daily content on its robust website, The reductions are expected to save Kent State's student media department almost $38,000 a year in printing and delivery costs.
