Student Media

Truman Media Network

Because consumers access information from various media (TV, radio, print, Internet), the Truman Media Network (TMN) provides a real-world learning lab for students pursuing a communication major  (as well as other majors) that mirrors the industry movement toward telling stories on multiple media platforms. The Truman Media Network is made up of several outlets, including The Index newspaper, TMN TV, Detours magazine and KTRM radio.
