BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Daily Reveille, LSU’s more than 120-year-old student newspaper, will end its daily print publication beginning next semester.

The newspaper will scale back to a weekly print edition.

The Daily Reveille’s student editors announced the change in a post on the newspaper’s website early Thursday. The post says because of a loss in the newspaper’s advertising revenue, the Office of Student Media was in danger of depleting its financial reserves within two academic years.

Copies of the newspaper are free on campus. Printing costs about $108,000 per year, and the paper is subsidized by student fees.

The announcement says the reduction in print expenses will allow them to redistribute funds to increase circulation, upgrade equipment and software and improve the digital footprint on LSUNow.com.
