The Daily was founded in September 1891 as The Pacific Wave and ran under that title until June 5, 1908, having absorbed the short-lived campus paper The College Idea which ran during the 1895-1896 school year3 The newspaper became a daily with its September 15, 1908 issue and changed its name to The Pacific Daily Wave This name lasted until May 21, 1909, and the paper became The University of Washington Daily when the 1909-1910 school year began4

The University of Washington Daily ceased publishing Monday issues in 1933 during the Great Depression In 1976, it became The Daily of the University of Washington, and in 1985 it resumed publishing on Mondays2

In 2007, The Daily became a partner with Next Door Media and jointly launched udistrictdailycom, a blog that reports on the U-District in Seattle, Washington

In 2010, The Daily created a half-hour television companion show called The Daily's Double Shot The first episode premiered on UWTV, Channel 27 on February 5, 2010, with new episodes premiering every two weeks during the academic year

In 2016, The Daily switched to a twice weekly print schedule on Mondays and Thursday, with regular online content the other weekdays


The Daily is one of the most awarded college newspapers in the United States

Former awards include Newspaper of the Year from the Associated Collegiate Press in 1996, 1997 and 2000;5 and the Mark of Excellence Award for the Best All Around Newspaper in the nation from the Society of Professional Journalists in 19976

At the 2010 National College Media Conference The Daily earned the Pacemaker for General Excellence, Best of Show, Story of the Year Editorial/Opinion, Story of the Year Diversity and Multimedia Story of the Year The Daily also earned the 2007,7 2008,8 20099 and 201010 Apple Award for the best four-year college newspaper tabloid in the United States at the CMA Spring Convention in New York City It has also been recognized with the 2007,11 200812 and 200913 Mark of Excellence Award for the Best All-Around Newspaper in Region 10 Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska by the Society of Professional Journalists It was a finalist for the 2009 Pacemaker Newspaper of the Year, and earned second place for Best of Show at the National College Media Conference14


In November 2008, The Daily ran an op-ed column written by John Fay, a columnist, which criticized gay marriage as part of a point/counterpoint regarding the passage of Proposition 8 in California The piece was accompanied by an illustration of a man standing next to a sheep, referencing Fay's statement that allowing gay marriage would lead to legal bestiality Among other controversial statements, Fay argued that "being homosexual, like other emotional tendencies, doesn’t make someone a bad person, but it’s a problem that needs to be dealt with, not denied" The article sparked an outrage among the student body, and students assembled in the Husky Union Building to protest, claiming that the article encourages "fear and hate"15

The Graduate and Professional Student Senate drafted a resolution at their December 3, 2008 meeting to have the editor-in-chief and opinion editor to either apologize for the publication of the opinion piece and illustration, or to resign15

Daily editor-in-chief Sarah Jeglum stated that she supports balanced viewpoints and doesn't plan to give the apology as requested16 She encouraged groups and individuals to continue to voice their various opinions and to have The Daily act as a public forum for a variety of opinion

The Graduate and Professional Student Senate passed a resolution at their February 4, 2009 meeting to direct the Graduate and Professional Student Senate representative on the Board of Student Publications to vote for censure of editor-in-chief Sarah Jeglum

On February 10, 2009 the Associated Students of the University of Washington ASUW passed a resolution supporting "the independence of The Daily as a member of the free press," and "its right to publish controversial material provided it is within the bounds of speech protected by the first amendment and THAT the ASUW finds that printing this article did not cross those legal boundaries and did not violate The Daily’s code of ethics, thus a call for censure of Sarah Jeglum is not warranted"

The Board of Student Publications met February 19 to consider the GPSS resolution to censure Sarah Jeglum The board voted with two yea, and five nay and the resolution failed to be adopted by the Board

ASUW then considered another resolution in response the GPSS attempt to censure to establish Free Speech and National Freedom of Speech Week during the third week of October
