Who We Are

The Towerlight print edition is published weekly, on Tuesdays, during the academic year by Baltimore Student Media, Inc. for the Towson University community. The paper includes news, opinion, sports, arts & entertainment, and display and classified advertising. Circulation is 10,000 copies per issue. The majority are dropped on the Towson campus, but we also deliver to Goucher College, Loyola College, College of Notre Dame, and Johns Hopkins University, and to street boxes and storefronts throughout the area. Our editorial operations are governed by a student editorial board and a student editor-in-chief. The advertising and business operations are run by a full-time general manager. The publication is funded entirely through advertising revenue and donations from the public. It is neither subsidized nor supervised by Towson University.
