Vox Magazine blends Columbia’s urban mentality and hometown familiarity into a smart, small-city tabloid.
With an ear to the underground and an eye out for the unique, Vox brings mid-Missourians an analysis and reflection of contemporary issues with useful and provocative articles. The magazine profiles the human condition, exposes local culture and provides reviews, tips and trends that tell readers what’s happening and where to be.
Students are the writers, editors, designers, photographers and managers at Vox, an award-winning city publication that keeps readers informed about what is happening and where to be in Columbia. It is one of five professional newsrooms that comprise the School’s Missouri News Network.
Vox publishes a monthly print edition and a website, providing insight on local news and culture. It can also be picked up at drop locations around Columbia, Missouri and on all three college campuses (University of Missouri, Stephens College and Columbia College).
Vox is consistently recognized by the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, the Society of Professional Journalists and the William Randolph Hearst Foundation in their annual student awards contests.

The network delivers news coverage to people in Mid-Missouri and throughout the state, offering relevant and meaningful journalism that helps audiences stay engaged with their local communities.
