The Red & Black is Northeastern University’s only student-run athletics magazine. Released semesterly, the writing, photography, design and social media are all handled exclusively by Northeastern students. In addition, The Red & Black also runs The Howl, a podcast that is an extension of the unique athlete-led storytelling that has always been the mission of The Red & Black.

The Red & Black is particularly focused on student-athlete involvement. Modeled around The Players’ Tribune and Sports Illustrated, there are numerous First Person Stories from the student-athletes of Northeastern detailing their experiences. Furthermore, several student-athletes hold leadership positions within the magazine, ensuring a commitment to high quality coverage of all athletic programs on campus. With an ever-growing partnership with Northeastern Athletics – which includes presenting the annual Red & Black Dedication Award at the athletic department’s year-end banquet – The Red & Black represents a key part of the athletics culture at Northeastern University.
The Red & Black also boasts a strong history, with an appearance on the Northeastern Athletics NESN television show titled, “Tales of the Howlin’ Huskies,” and having numerous alumni take both co-op and post-graduate positions at prestigious institutions like Bleacher Report, Boston Globe, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Angels, and Northeastern Athletic Communications.
