SIU board to revisit student newspaper's finances
EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) — When Southern Illinois University's governing board meets to address the departure of the Carbondale campus' chancellor, chances are the school's student newspaper will be covering it.
The Daily Egyptian newspaper also could learn Tuesday if it'll get some funding to help it stay afloat.
WSIU radio (http://bit.ly/1lMM8Vk ) reports the SIU Board of Trustees gathers Tuesday in Edwardsville to talk about ways to help the troubled student newspaper's finances, perhaps with a new $9-per-student media fee.
The newspaper's future turned cloudy in May when the board declined to approve a student fee to help pay for the daily. Administrators insisted that revenue would help keep it from losing a projected $200,000.
The board also is to begin mapping out how to replace Carbondale Chancellor Rita Cheng, Northern Arizona University's new president.
