The Newspaper

The Newspaper, published by non-profit corporation Planet Publications Inc., is the largest independent student newspaper in Canada with circulation on the University of Toronto campus. It began publishing in 1978 and was briefly operated as The Independent Weekly. The Newspaper has been financially self-supporting for its entire history and has survived despite competing against many student-fee-supported campus newspapers. The Newspaper is officially recognized by the University of Toronto under the campus media policy of its Governing Council, a unique policy protecting the rights of independent publishers on the University of Toronto campus.

Film director Atom Egoyan, novelists Rohinton Mistry and Ray Robertson, and television public affairs host Steve Paikin all worked for The Newspaper as students while attending the University of Toronto.

In The Newspaper's first year of publication, prominent professors at the University of Toronto contributed articles, including Allan Bloom, Denis Duffy, and Robertson Davies. In 1994, The Newspaper interviewed influential hip hop duo Gang Starr. The founding editors of the newspaper were former editors for The Varsity (newspaper), Steven Petranik, Thomas Simpson and Ken Whitehurst. The Newspaper's offices were formerly located at 1 Spadina Crescent, but moved to 256 McCaul Street in 2013 due to renovations. Currently the paper distributes once per month in print, with issues available at University of Toronto Mississauga, OCADU, and UTSG. The Newspaper publishes daily online. Since 2003, The Newspaper's last print issue of every publishing season is a large compact alcohol-themed issue called The Boozepaper, often comprising a centerfold poster and beer reviews.
