Missouri Newspaper Internships

July 29, 2016

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, journalism students Ruth Serven, Matt Aten, Ashley Ulsh, Briana Saunders, Tayler Ward, Alec Lewis and Kora Chrzan are working alongside seasoned newspaper veterans.

They are learning the ropes and preparing to fill positions in the newspaper industry once they graduate from college. The future of Missouri newspapers looks brighter with these talented journalism students being shown the many newspaper opportunities available to them and the benefits Missouri newspapers have to offer.

You made this opportunity possible. We look forward to sharing with you their stories over the coming weeks. We hope you take pride in what you have helped us accomplish and know how truly grateful we are for your continued support.

Register for the Sports Reporting Workshop on July 22!

July 11, 2016

Athletes train all year to be the best at their sport. Will you train one day to be the best sports reporter? Come learn from those who not only teach it but are in the newsroom and on the field/track/court each day. Greg Bowers, Brady Jones, Amber Garrett, Matt Dunlin and Laura Johnston will help you better serve your readers while making your workload more manageable.

Worried about new laws that will cut the amount of time you can spend covering local sports? We know sports editors and reporters are among the hardest working people in journalism. This daylong course will provide you with tips and tricks to make your job a little easier.

Thanks to a partnership with Show-Me State Games, attendees will get a 2016 Show-Me State Games T-shirt and press packet. Stick around after the class to cover your local athletes competing in games throughout the city. We’ll even help you track down athletes from your home town.

Space is limited, so register today!
