Byte is part of a larger group called Unified Media. Unified Media is a collaboration of student media organizations at Ball State University including The Daily News, Ball Bearings Magazine, Byte, The Benny Weather Group, NewsLink Indiana and The McKinley Avenue Agency. Together, they strive to produce relevant, compelling and informative content. 

Byte is a multimedia, student run publication dedicated to helping student contributors learn valuable media skills through critique and evaluation of their passions. While working with Byte, students have the opportunity to build professional relationships, build a diverse portfolio of written and multimedia works, and gain real-life work experiences. 

Byte and Unified Media are largely funded through advertising and creative service sales by their Unified Media partner, The McKinley Avenue Agency. All revenue goes directly back into the operating budget for student media. While McKinley Avenue has grown to include full-service strategic communication services in order to make up for the loss of advertising revenue seen in newspapers nation-wide, Byte needs your support to continue to offer the world-class educational experience it has been known and celebrated for.
