If you do, you’ve come to the right place. If you don’t and have accidentally ended up here, please consider making a donation anyhow. 

The Herald has been covering WKU since 1925, and we’re the only publication solely dedicated to reporting on WKU. We’ve won 16 Pacemaker awards, the highest honor a student publication can receive. Combined with the Talisman, we have produced 27 alumni who have gone on to win a Pulitzer. 

The Herald receives no support from WKU for printing, student pay or a wide variety of other costs. Our revenue is generated from students selling advertising.
