Public meeting set to discuss future of LSU's newspaper
BATON ROUGE- LSU students and alumni have been voicing concerns over ongoing discussions about possibly cutting the print schedule of the university's storied Daily Reveille campus newspaper.
A public meeting scheduled Aug. 22 will give them a chance to discuss the future of campus media with LSU leaders.
Supporters are signing an online petition that calls for the decisions about The Reveille's future to be made by students. Many of those who have signed the petition have left messages about how much the experience working at the campus newspaper has meant to them and their careers.
Incoming Reveille editor Fernanda Zamudio-Suarez is thanking those that have rallied around the paper and joining in the discussion about the future of the student-run paper that once challenged Gov. Huey Long.
