Daily Forty-Niner: Support our newsroom and our student journalists


The Daily Forty-Niner is the longest-running student news publication at Long Beach State University. For more than 70 years, our student reporters have been producing award-winning coverage of campus and city news and events. The Daily Forty-Niner is an essential resource for students, faculty, staff, researchers, alumni and Long Beach residents.

When COVID-19 hit our campus community last spring, it was a fearful and uncertain time for everyone at CSULB. Yet the Daily Forty-Niner staff remained determined to keep doing their jobs. Our student journalists reported remotely on the latest breaking COVID-19 news and how it affected the campus community. The team regarded their jobs as essential, and the university agreed.

As the pandemic continued, the university moved all classes online, only allowing essential students, faculty and staff on campus. Because of this, the Daily Forty-Niner made the decision to halt all print products until students returned to campus. As print advertising is our highest generating revenue stream, halting print, put out about 80% of our semesterʼs advertising revenue in jeopardy. 

 Now, your CSULB news source needs your help!


The Daily Forty-Niner is looking to raise $10,000 to help cover the expenses of running a student media outlet impacted by lost ad revenue due to the pandemic. Your donation is a testament to the appreciation of student media and all the hard work the Daily Forty-Niner staff has done and continues to do.

Your donations will help these students continue their passion, even through these uncertain times. Donate today and help us help you stay informed. ❤
