The Free Press is the official student newspaper of the University of Southern Maine. Our mission is to be the definitive source of news and commentary for the University’s community. We are funded by advertising sales and through a student activity fee.

The Free Press reaches an estimated 10,000 students, their friends and families on the Portland, Gorham and Lewiston-Auburn campuses as well as in the greater Portland and Lewiston-Auburn communities.

The Free Press publishes on Mondays throughout the Fall and Spring semesters – approximately 22 issues per year. Each issue has a circulation of 3,000 copies and is distributed to over 55 locations on the Portland Gorham campuses as well as Lewiston-Auburn and within surrounding communities.

We welcome students who have work study, are looking for an internship, or want to work for department funds. Are you interested in running your own show or podcast?

We are always looking for volunteers for on air shows, podcasts, audio engineering and dj-ing or hosting a show! Listen on our app or at 90.9 GM. To learn more information check out our website or contact the station manager Jim Rand at
