The Murray State News is a student-produced news organization on the campus of Murray State University. The News consists of these products: a digital-first publication housed on and websites, podcasts, multimedia, social media, a monthly print tabloid-sized publication, and specialty publications such as Gateway magazine and Racer Guide.

The News strives to inform students of news across campus, throughout the community and across the globe; feature organizations, professors, students or events, making the campus unique and serve as a forum for students to voice their opinions. The News is not the public relations tool for the University. The news organization is run by students, who assign and write stories, take photographs, produce podcasts and/or audio pieces, produce multimedia pieces, design pages for print and web editions, produce social media content, produce graphics and sell advertising. Student editors have the authority to make all content decisions without censorship or advance approval. A journalism faculty member makes suggestions, but editorial decisions are made by an editorial board composed of students. In addition, The News provides a hands-on learning environment for students interested in journalism.
