On the Record


 We are a professional-level news outlet devoted to both informing the youth of Louisville and amplifying their stories. We create unbiased local and national reporting with a concentration in long-form storytelling and innovative visuals. We work to engage our audience through a diverse human perspective. Though our roots are in print, we will use this year to explore immersive digital mediums and expand our online presence. Unprecedented times have brought about challenges, but our promise to uphold journalistic standards while telling involved and inclusive stories that impact our community holds true.

On the Record is a student run newsmagazine centered around filling the void of youth voice in the media. We currently distribute citywide in Louisville and southern Indiana. Print copies of our publication can be found around the Louisville area, in notable locations such as: most Heine Brothers, Half-Price Books on Westport Road and Hurstbourne Parkway, Press on Market, and Please & Thank You. Digital copies of our magazine are posted to issuu.com/ontherecordmagazine as they are released.

On the Record is also an award-winning newsmagazine, having won both a National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) Pacemaker and a Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) Gold Crown in the past year. On the Record has also been awarded by institutions such as the Western Kentucky University (WKU) Mark of Excellence and Kentucky High School Journalism Association (KHSJA) for photography, writing, and design achieved by individual members of the publication.

On the Record’s faculty adviser is Liz Palmer, the magnet coordinator of the Journalism & Communication program at duPont Manual High School. You may reach her at [email protected].
