Our Story

The Daily Iowan is the independent, nonprofit student newspaper located on the University of Iowa campus. The newsroom is entirely student-run and student-managed.


Our media properties include:

  • The Daily Iowan print newspaper — published Monday through Friday during the school year and weekly in the summer

  • DITV – a live TV news broadcast airing Monday through Friday during the school year

  • dailyiowan.com – multimedia website with breaking news and daily updates

As the oldest student newspaper west of the Mississippi River and the first student newspaper in the country with a female editor, our proud tradition continues to drive the work we do today.


The Daily Iowan has launched the careers of journalists at destinations like the New York Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, Politico, ESPN and CNN.
