A strong student newspaper has been a long-standing tradition at Webb. The original Blue & Gold was first published in the 1920s, and archival copies can still be found in Jackson Library.
After a publication lapse, the school paper was re-instituted in 2008 as part of a new journalism program under the direction of history teacher Robert Robillard. The revitalized newspaper came with a new name, The Webb Canyon Chronicle. Why a new name? The student editorial staff felt it was more inclusive of the whole student body, the former name being based on the colors of the original boys' school.
The editorial section of the inaugural issue of The Chronicle, included the following vision for the paper:
"A school newspaper, although created by only a small segment of the student body, is not meant to be a venue for the opinions of those few, but rather a reflection of the thoughts and opinions of the entire school. We truly want to make all of the voices on campus heard. To that end, we welcome all students to submit opinion pieces, articles and creative writing or visual art. The newspaper should galvanize students to look around them and arouse student interest in the community of Webb. We believe the newspaper will help students to more fully comprehend all facets of school life, especially areas in which they might not be involved. This newspaper should not only be a forum to speak about the great parts of our community, but also about the things which could be better..."
