The student-run Red & Black at the University of Georgia is the first high-profile college paper in the country to go “digital-first.” What used to be a daily printed newspaper is now primarily online, with a weekly print edition full of stories with more depth and a longer view. Students are also publishing a monthly glossy magazine.
Students at the University of Georgia cannot pick up their daily copy of the Red & Black student newspaper anymore. The publication has ditched a daily printed edition for an online-first strategy. The Red & Black still publishes a weekly printed copy on Thursdays. And students now also produce a monthly magazine with more in-depth stories. But for daily news, sports and features, you have to visit the paper’s website.
