The Missourian is a digital-first publication that was founded in 1908 as a community newspaper. It regularly beats out the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kansas City Star and Columbia Tribune for state journalism awards.
Many of our alumni now write for leading newspapers, magazines and websites. Others are working as photographers, designers, graphic artists, copy editors, website developers, etc.
As journalism has changed, so has the Missourian. Although its print edition publishes five days a week, the Missourian is a 24/7 operation.
- ColumbiaMissourian.com is a news site that’s updated constantly and includes video, audio and other multimedia as well as reader-friendly interactive data. Stories written by student reporters are published first online.
The new digital tools of our age allow students to work with a completely new model. Digital is the language of the present, and the Missourian’s mission is to prepare tomorrow’s leaders in journalism regardless of platform.
