About Us

The Eastern Progress has been serving the Eastern Kentucky University community since 1922. The Eastern Progress provides opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience in a newsroom and broadcasting and podcasting studios.

As an independent student network, the Eastern Progress is funded entirely by sponsors and advertisers. 

The Eastern Progress publishes a print edition every Tuesday during the fall and spring semesters based on the Eastern Kentucky University academic calendar. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Eastern Progress will not be publishing a print issue during the 2020-21 academic year.

Our online news source is updated constantly at, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@easternprogress).
