Opportunities for online college news

Hey Cal State Long Beach 49er — if the whole newspaper thing falls through, there’s still hope. Check this out.

Inside Higher Ed has this story about alternative college presses are using the web to their advantage. They’re doing podcasts. They’re going beyond the campus — even branching into celebrity babies. And they’re doing it on super tight budgets.

I know, I know — if you go online only, no one will read your stuff on campus. Well? That’s their bad. A large purpose of a student-run newspaper is journalism training for the students who run the newspaper. And you know what? Times are a changing.

If you can find a way to thrive in this new, Wild West-type, online world, you will definitely find a job after college. And trust me — that will be the best product you can produce, in the long run.
