About the Magazine
The J-School Magazine
It has been 40 years since KBIA-FM's first broadcast was sent over the airwaves in 1972, and now the NPR-member station is preparing for its anniversary celebration. [More]
Letter from the Student Editors

When you're preparing to graduate from a private liberal arts college and you tell your professors you're pursuing a career in journalism, they tend to look nervous.

They wonder about the future of the field and the kinds of jobs that will await us upon graduation.

A year ago, this was a situation we encountered often. Maybe that's why we both decided to enroll in the Missouri School of Journalism - because we recognized that the J-School is a place that understands and embraces the changes facing journalism.

In this issue of The J-School Magazine, we wanted to explore those changes. In our "Then and Now" story, alumni talk about how their professions have evolved with the advent of technology and social media. We also reflect on the history of KBIA as it celebrates its 40th anniversary.

Beyond looking at these changes, however, we wanted to examine what remains constant as journalism evolves. Our writers found that the core principles of "The Journalist's Creed" still ring true. By talking with some of the school's renowned faculty members, we sought to answer the question, "What is good reporting?" The answers indicated there are some journalistic values that span mediums and transcend technology.

Through the process of creating this magazine, we were reminded of something else that has remained the same - the Missouri Method. The magazine was made possible by the hard work of four graduate and 10 undergraduate students, many of whom were learning how to write a narrative for the first time.

Thanks to the efforts of these students, we're able to present you with the third issue of The J-School Magazine. We hope you have as much fun reading it as we had putting it together.

As always, if you like what you read or have a suggestion for us, feel free to drop us a note at journalism@missouri.edu.
