Join The Herald


The Brown Daily Herald, Inc. is a financially independent, nonprofit media organization with more than 250 students working across our journalism, business and web divisions to bring you The Brown Daily Herald, BlogDailyHerald and Post- Magazine. The Herald seeks to inform and entertain the Brown community by producing engaging content relevant to our audience across a variety of platforms.


The Herald is an organization devoted to teaching, and we pride ourselves on our training of staff members and culture of mentorship. We are committed to growing our staff members as people, thinkers and leaders and helping them develop skills they will use for the rest of their lives. Former Heralders currently work at top organizations in media, consulting, finance, tech and the nonprofit sector.



Reporters pursue engaging stories about the University and campus life, Providence and Rhode Island, arts and culture, sports and science and research.

Photographers and videographers produce the images and videos that bring stories to life while learning to use professional-grade equipment and software.

Designers lay out the print edition of our newspaper and create compelling graphics.

Copy editors review articles for accuracy and clarity, ensuring that we publish nothing but our best work.

Our social media team edits Facebook posts to boost our reach and develops our online audience.


BlogDailyHerald writers blog about the latest campus news and happenings and keep students in the loop on everything they should know, from "Frosh-cessities" to "Students Who Do Cool Things."


Business associates pitch to local and university clients to sell advertising for print and online, manage The Herald's finances and generate new revenue streams.


Web staffers help build and improve The Herald's websites, which get hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.


Columnists share their ideas and opinions on topics that affect Brown and the surrounding community.

Editorial cartoonists and comic artists create illustrations that provide commentary and entertainment, respectively.
