The Daily Aztec
|Headquarters||San Diego, California, U.S.|
The Daily Aztec publishes on a regular basis when the university is in session (excluding holidays). It serves a student population of over 35,000 and a faculty and staff population of over 4,000. It is named for the university's mascot, the Aztec.
In the Fall of 1913, the student body of the then-San Diego Normal School voted to begin publishing a four (4) page weekly campus newspaper. The first edition premiered Nov. 26, 1913, as a four-page tabloid, under the name of the Normal News Weekly. In 1921, the paper was renamed the Paper Lantern. In 1960, the paper shifted to daily publication, becoming The Daily Aztec. Over the years the publication's frequency varied; as of Fall 2013 it appears twice a week.
Although previously connected with the SDSU journalism department, The Daily Aztec is now part of the Associated Students of San Diego State University, which runs paper through its Communication Authority Board (CAB). The Daily Aztec does not receive funding from the school or the Associated Students; rather all of the paper's revenue is generated from advertising. The CAB is composed of students, faculty and staff from SDSU and has both permanent and annual members; the CAB hires the editor in chief, approves the paper's budgets, and is responsible for ensuring that paper follows approved advertising and editorial policies.
