The Lantern is the name of the student-published university newspaper at The Ohio State University.
It is one of the largest campus newspapers in the United States.
The paper was chartered in 1881 and became an integral part of the School of Journalism in 1914.
Today, with a circulation of 28,000 papers during the regular school year and readership of 75,000,
it is the third largest college newspaper in the country. The Lantern is a laboratory paper that is put
together daily by students in the newsroom of the Journalism Building. There are 15 paid editors
who change after completion of academic quarters. The business side of the newspaper is operated
by 15 full time employees and 5-7 student Account Executives responsible for advertising sales. The
print and online advertising allows for the paper to be fully self-funded & does not rely on the University
for financial aid. Revenues are not disclosed but are estimated to vary from $1.8M to $2.5M annually.
