The Daily Eastern News is a student-run newspaper published for the community of Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois. The newspaper was founded in 1915  and publishes on weekdays during the school year and online-only in the summer. It currently has a daily circulation of over 4,000.
The newspaper includes news, sports, features, opinions and special sections, as well as the weekly entertainment section "The Verge." The paper has won numerous state and national awards, including several Pacemaker awards. 
The paper's editorial, production, and advertising staff are composed entirely of students from a range of degree programs. The newspaper's faculty adviser is Lola Burnham.
The Daily Eastern News is printed adjacent to the newsroom on the university's Goss printing press. Eastern Illinois University is one of only three universities in the United States to run its own newspaper printing press  and is one of the smallest universities in the country to have a daily newspaper.
The newspaper was founded on Nov. 5, 1915, as the Normal School News, as the university was then known as Eastern Illinois State Normal School. The paper was renamed Teacher's College News and Eastern State News before its current name was chosen in 1980.
