The Daily Tar Heel is the student newspaper at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The non-profit organization, which incorporated in 1989 as a separate legal entity from UNC, stopped taking student fees in 1993 and has since been fully funded by its advertising revenue, thus making it both fiscally and editorially independent. The student journalists are solely responsible for all content under the direction of the student editor-in-chief. The 2013-14 editor-in-chief is Nicole Comparato. The paper’s business operations are governed by a 12-member, student majority board of directors whose open slots are filled by the board each spring for the next year.
