Local Student Newspaper Picked Up by Major Chain

By  | 

A local student-run newspaper is making headlines of its own. Effective August 1, the student ran FSView and Florida Flambeau is owned by the Tallahassee Democrat.

FSView General Manager Jennifer Irwin says Gannett, the company which owns the Democrat, has been in talks with the FSView staff for months about a possible collaboration.

"Moving to Gannett does allow us some flexible deadlines. Now we are going to be able to provide more up to date news coverage and last minute campus news coverage. We are really excited about that," said Irwin.

The bi-weekly FSView will continue to be managed by students, but will be published by the Democrat.
