The Nugget has been the official NAIT newspaper since 1964.
Started as a platform to give the students of NAIT a voice, The Nugget has survived the ever-changing media market and is proving successful while in a revitalization period. With a growing want for accurate, local media, independent student newspapers are becoming more important than ever.
There are 13 issues produced per school year, with thousands of copies strategically distributed across the campus in high-traffic areas. Through social media, and our website, our online engagement has doubled in the last year.
With a team of 9 Student Editors and around 20 contributors, it is clear that student media is alive and well!
Meet the Team
Adel is a 2nd year student in the Radio & Television program at NAIT who is pumped to be the News/Issues Editor for The Nugget after writing as a contributor for a year. When he’s not on the broadcast booth or working on school assignments, you can find him playing ice hockey at an outdoor rink near you.
Alleah is a marketing student who is stoked to take on the role of Entertainment Editor after writing for The Nugget last year. She loves Edmonton’s local music scene and learning about niche rock genres. In her spare time, she likes to binge anime with her black cat, Levi.
Angela’s in her first year of Television studies. She longs to entertain people through words, sounds and visuals. The kitchen, along with second-rate jokes, is her happy place.
Kaytlyn is in her second year of the Radio and Television program at NAIT. As a member of the women’s basketball team, she is excited to suit up as an Ook this coming season.
