LSU’s more than 100-year-old, student-run newspaper, The Daily Reveille, will continue to publish for five days a week -- for now.
But Director of Student Media Steve Buttry announced Wednesday that student media leaders are “planning extensive research this spring and summer on the issue of print frequency.” He said there would be opportunities for public input in the early fall.
“We plan to make a decision early in the fall whether to reduce the number of days published or to continue daily print publication,” he wrote in an email sent to student media leaders and Reveille alumni.
Last year, Buttry made waves on campus when he initiated a discussion about reducing print frequency as a means of saving money and catching up with the digital age.
“We’re more than happy to learn that The Daily Reveille will still be publishing five days a week next semester and pleased that student media staffers are being involved in the decision process,” said Daily Reveille student editor Quint Forgey in a statement. “We hope their opinions and suggestions will be considered in deciding the future of the institution that means so much to all of us.”
