From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Daily Iowan is an independent,
19,500-circulation daily student newspaper serving Iowa City
and the University of Iowa community. It has
consistently won a number of collegiate journalism awards,
including multiple National Pacemaker Awards,
and is generally regarded as one of the finest student newspapers
in the country.
The Daily Iowan is an affiliate of UWIRE, which
distributes and promotes its content to their network.
George Gallup, creator of the Gallup poll, served as editor of
The Daily Iowan in the early 1920s. The newspaper's publisher is
William Casey, who has served in the post since 1976. He is
credited with starting the newspaper's scholarship program for
talented future journalists, who have since worked at news agencies
such as The Associated
Press, The New York Times, The
Wall Street Journal, The St.
Petersburg Times, The Dallas Morning
News, Star Tribune, The
Des Moines Register, and the Times-Picayune.
Like many other newspapers, the Daily Iowan publishes detailed
arrest records. The records then become easily accessible from
search engines. Although police blotters are removed from the
website a month after they are posted, cached google images of the
listings may remain online permanently.
