[The following refers to the print edition of the April 4 Columbia Missourian.]

Dear Reader,

Well, we’re here – the first published draft of a new Sunday Missourian. Consider the journey: dozens of letters and phone calls and e-mails from you, the readers; regular survey responses from the Missourian Readers Circle; conversations with the experts on journalism at the Missouri School of Journalism and the experts on mid-Missouri life in coffee shops and in basketball bleachers. Consider the sausage-making among Missourian editors: inspiration and creative bursts, fights and frustrations and, above all, an incredible passion to do something special for you.


Whether the work has been successful is up to you. Today isn’t an end. I want to make your Sunday better. On May 2, the Missourian will publish a revised edition based on your feedback and editors’ own critiques. By fall, NewSunday should be ready on a regular basis.
