Fort Hays State Newspaper Issues Last Print Edition


HAYS, Kan. (AP) — The student newspaper at Fort Hays State University has published its final print edition. The Hays Daily News reports that the move came after the Student Government Association voted last spring to cut funding to $19,750 from $32,250. Student Government leaders mentioned readership as an issue. Editor-in-chief Molly Walter says there now are no funds to continue publishing the newspaper, called the University Leader. The last print issue was published Thursday. For the foreseeable future, the student journalists will produce news in an online-only format. In 2003, the Student Government Association pulled the plug on funding for the Reveille, the university's yearbook. Provost Larry Gould says the university doesn't want to eliminate the student newspaper. He says it's time to put together a plan for student media and advertising.
