Written by Gabe Burns, Editor-in-Chief

The Spectator, as most newspapers in America, is in a transition period. News is becoming more and more digital-based as technology continues to grow. As a result, papers from The Spectator to The Valdosta Daily Times to the New York Times are forced to adapt.

This is the beginning of a new Spectator.

Fall semester will feature more digital media than years past. While we will continue to print weekly, there’s an increasing emphasis on our social media, website and app. Details will be unveiled as the semester continues.

Regardless of the platform, The Spectator is dedicated to bringing news to the VSU community. We will be your go-to source for breaking stories, features on campus figures, sports updates and everything else. As a student-run publication independent of the university, we operate with complete freedom. We will investigate any potential story with the school’s best interest at heart. The new era will bring with it immense changes and a renewed focus on VSU-related content.

If you have any tips, story ideas, interest in contributing or just want to meet the reporters, come visit us in 1238 Hopper Hall, tweet/message @vsuspectator or call 229-333-5688. As Editor-in-Chief, my door is always open. Feel free to email me at gcburns@valdosta.edu or call/text 229-251-8895.

We’re looking forward to the best semester The Spectator has ever had, and we wish each of you the same fortune. Let’s get it started …
