Edinboro Now // Get in the Know

Content to Edinboro Now is provided by Edinboro Campus Media which is comprised of ETV, the Spectator, and WFSE as well as Edinboro University's Department of Journalism and Public Relations. Our primary objectives are to provide enhanced media coverage throughout southern Erie County and to create unique co-curricular learning opportunities for journalism students at Edinboro University. The views expressed are not necessarily the views of Edinboro University.

The Spectator

The Spectator is Edinboro University's campus newspaper published weekly by students and advised by Professor Chris Lantinen. The Spectator started in 1935, but was not the first Edinboro student newspaper - the Normal News was printed in 1865. Through the years, The Spectator has been given opportunities to cover famous people such as poet Robert Frost in 1940 and President William Howard Taft in 1912.
