For more 142 years, The Hornet Tribune has been shaping the careers of student journalists. Here’s how you can help keep it going in the future.

We need good journalism – and to develop exceptional journalists – now more than ever. The Hornet Tribune has helped launch the careers of journalists at destinations like the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Associated Press, Politico, and CNN.

But The Hornet Tribune, an independent non-profit organization, is facing new pressures as the business of media changes rapidly. We are ready up for the challenge. We will continue to innovate. We want to do more – and we need your help.

Please consider giving to one of America’s oldest and greatest HBCU campus newspapers. Your tax-deductible donation will ensure continued excellence from our award-winning organization and provide support for a number of initiatives, such as:

Scholarships: The DI has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships since 1987 to exceptional, hard-working students.

Travel opportunities: While many college newspapers have eliminated or cut their newsroom travel budgets, the DI continues to send teams of reporters and photographers to cover political conventions, bowl games, tournaments and other major news events.

Training for our student staff: The DI provides professional training in reporting, editing, design, photography, digital, and broadcasting so the next crop of young journalists can hit the ground running in the real world.

New technology and equipment upgrades: The tools and equipment our students need for good reporting and storytelling – and to land the best job – is evolving every day.

For 93 years, the students of Alabama State University and residents of Montgomery have relied on The Hornet Tribune for the information they need about their community. Although methods of producing and distributing the news have changed since the first edition in 1926, every event that affected campus has been chronicled by the student journalists here.

The Hornet Tribune is committed to two missions: To train the next generation of student communicators with journalistic best practices and the latest technology and to provide readers with unparalleled coverage. The weekly print editions and daily online news remain free to all. No news outlet covers Alabama State University more completely than The Hornet Tribune, and with cutbacks at local news organizations, we have stepped up to provide increased coverage of local government and Montgomery news.

But the future is uncertain. The Hornet Tribune receives very little funding from the state or the university. Traditional print advertising has shrunk, and digital revenue has not replaced it.

Whether you are a former The Hornet Tribune staff member, an ASU graduate or just someone interested in news about Alabama State University and Montgomery, your support can help keep this institution around for another 193 years. By supporting The Hornet Tribune today, you’re also supporting the next generation of journalists.
