UWO Gazette

UWO Gazette

The Gazette is the student newspaper published by the University Students' Council of the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. The Gazette began in 1906 as a hand-written literature newspaper called In Cap And Gown. The paper was not actually produced in newsprint until 1908. The Gazette adopted its current name in 1930.

The Gazette is the only daily student newspaper in Canada, publishing Tuesday through Friday. The Gazette moved from weekly to twice per week in 1948, and moved to its current four-times-a-week publication schedule in 1991. The paper's large staff (three full-time supervising editors, 20 section editors and dozens of volunteers, plus a full-time advertising and composing department) allows this grueling publication schedule.

Gazette alumni can be found working for several of Canada's major newspapers and media outlets. Notable media names include Global news broadcaster Kevin Newman and the CBC's Elliotte Friedman, Maclean's columnist Paul Wells, Toronto Star reporter Kevin Donovan and author and National Post columnist Scott Feschuk. Other past Gazette writers include actor Alan Thicke, author Joan Barfoot, CBC Radio host Carol Off, and former CP24 anchor Justin Smallbridge.
