TCU Student Media gives students an opportunity to explore leadership and storytelling through the framework of journalism.

A board of faculty and staff hire the executive editor, who in turn hires the rest of the staff.

TCU Student Media is responsible for TCU360.com and the weekly newspaper, The Skiff. Students enrolled in skills classes — such as Reporting, Multimedia and Newscast — contribute content to the sites and the newspaper, but students from any major can also produce content for publications.

Students are encouraged to explore various media platforms and digital tools while gaining experience that will help them in the studies at TCU and in professional media.

Jobs are posted on Frog Jobs Powered by Handshake in April for the upcoming academic year. All Horned Frogs are welcome to join Student Media. However, please note that some jobs do require the completion of the Department of Journalism’s Reporting class.

The executive editor of TCU360, as well as the managing editor, associate editors and Skiff editor, are expected to make day-to-day and long-range publishing decisions for the organization.
