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.

ETV

The Edinboro News Network was founded in 1991 under the leadership of Dr. Bob Wallace, for whom the current television studio in Compton Hall is named. The organization's name was later changed to ETV to reflect additional programming other than news. Today, ETV produces a variety of programming ranging from live sports coverage to the recording of commencement and other university events.

WFSE

Edinboro radio station, WJKB, was initially housed in Centennial Hall in 1964, and presented through a closed circuit using telephone lines. In 1970, the station switched to airing over cable TV locally. In 1978, the station obtained an FCC license to broadcast over the air. Now known as 88.9 WFSE - Fighting Scots Radio, the station plays a variety of the best rock and alternative/indie music of all time, with specialty shows featured throughout the week. WFSE provides live coverage of Fighting Scots athletics, streams 24/7, and serves the campus and community with local news and pertinent information.
