The Gazette is the student newspaper at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario, Canada. The Gazette is the only daily student newspaper in Canada, publishing Tuesday through Friday. It is owned and published by the University Students' Council.
The Gazette began in 1906 as a hand-written literature newspaper called In Cap And Gown. The paper was not actually produced in newsprint until 1908. The Gazette adopted its current name in 1930.
The Gazette moved from weekly to twice per week in 1948, and moved to its current four-times-a-week publication schedule in 1991. The paper's large staff (three full-time supervising editors, 20 section editors and dozens of volunteers, plus a full-time advertising and composing department) makes this publication schedule possible.
The editorial board is made of volunteer students and full-time staff. The Editor-in-Chief, Deputy Editor and Managing Editor are full-time salaried employees, usually recent graduates. The remaining editors are full-time students who volunteer and receive an honorarium per issue published. There are typically 22 to 24 editors in total.
