KU Student Newspaper Going Digital
Associated Press - February 5, 2015 6:13 am
The University Daily Kansan is going digital with fewer print editions and more content online.
The University of Kansas’ student newspaper announced Wednesday that it will move to just two printed issues per week, rather than four, starting this fall.
The Kansan has seen its web traffic increase over the past several years, while print circulation has slumped. The Kansan says in a news release that the shift of more content to its website will better serve students and faculty.
The Kansan’s staff decided the move was necessary because of research showing the newspaper’s audience is increasingly consuming news online. The shift also was made to help prepare the student journalists that run the newspaper for today’s media environment.
