The Gazette

The Western 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 four times every week, from Tuesday through Friday. The Gazette is an awesome opportunity for students who are looking to get some writing, photography, or design experience. Just stroll up to the Gazette office in the UCC and introduce yourself, and you could walk out with the first assignment of the rest of your journalism career.


CHRW is the radio station at Western. Run by a combination of staff and students, CHRW has a wide variety of programs ranging from sports to news to music. Western students are encouraged to take part and no experience is required, we recommend taking a look at their Get Involved page to see what you can do with CHRW.


WesternTV is the Western television show. Watch it if you don’t already. While WesternTV usually picks their crew at the beginning of the school year, if you’re interested in helping out it can’t hurt to reach out and ask.


USC Promotions works on photography, videography, event promotion, and social media needs for Western events! Click here for more information!


MustangsTV is primarily volunteer-run sports broadcast network that streams Mustangs hockey, basketball, volleyball, and soccer online. Over the course of a season, students will get a chance to learn not only the set-up, takedown and behind the scenes components of making a television broadcast, but also be a part of the live production, whether as an on-air reporter, camera crew, working on one of the many aspects to the video production, or creating highlight reels and pre or post-game reports. Contact Drew Pennycook for further information or to get involved!
