Echo Newspaper

The Echo is the newspaper of Truckee Meadows Community College, and has been distributed since 1976.

The TMCC Archives are home to a complete record of the Echo, dating to the first edition published in October 1976. Several print copies of each edition are available and can be viewed upon request. Before the college split in December 1979, the Echo was published under the name 'The Western Echo'. However, beginning January 1980, new editions dropped 'Western' from the title and were published under simply 'The Echo' with the inception of Truckee Meadows Community College.

It should be noted that from September 1994 - May 1997, the Echo was published under the name 'Voices'. This was due to differing staff opinions on what the mission of a student newspaper should be. 

"The paper will now be known as the TMCC Voices. We do not believe a student newspaper is meant to 'echo' information, but rather to 'voice' opinions and ideas of the student body it serves...we will eliminate reporting that lacks inspiration or the ability to provoke thought." - September 13, 1994, Vol. 19, No. 1

However, the change was short lived and the paper resumed publication as 'The Echo' in September 1997.
