About Us

The Chanticleer has been in publication since 1934, making it Jacksonville State University’s oldest student media outlet.

Originally named The Teacola, today The Chanticleer is run by a team of four editors and many volunteer writers and photographers. Every week during the Fall and Spring semesters, The Chanticleer publishes a weekly issue that covers all the goings on at JSU and the surrounding community—whether that’s campus events, sports or entertainment. “The Chanty” also has an extensive presence on the web and social media.

Notable Chanticleer alumni include Mai Martinez, a news anchor with CBS 2 Chicago, Ben Cunningham, the managing editor of the Anniston Star and Kara Coleman of the Opelika-Auburn News.
