The engine of Student Media

Ten distinct media partners make up the engine that drives Kent State Student Media forward. Each partner is a unique and independent student organization. They have opted to join together for mutual benefit under the banner of Student Media. At the top of each group is the selected editor, general manager or president who each "have sole authority to determine content for the media they lead and in turn take full responsibility for the content decisions made." They work with their faculty advisers, and others, to provide professional, high quality content for their audiences. Learn about each media partner below.
