Missourian Media Guide

Welcome to the Missourian Media Guide, a directory of Columbia, Mo., news and information sources.

Columbia nurtures a thriving media landscape that’s richer and more diverse than those of most towns its size. We know, however, that the flip side to that diversity can sometimes be a more overwhelming search for the news you need. The Missourian Media Guide is a navigation tool designed to help you find your way around Columbia’s information outlets.

The Missourian Media Guide includes blogs, magazines, newspapers, TV stations and radio stations. We’ve divided the directory into the eight sections listed below, so take a look around for sites that spark your interest or meet your needs.

Click on the section listed below to see the specific category, or scroll further down the page:

Business News
Schools and Higher Education
Entertainment and Music
News and Community Information
Niche Topics
Art and Photography

To be listed, a blog needs to:
1. Be updated at least once a month
2. Offer useful information about a niche interest or about the community

The Missourian Media Guide is a work in progress. With updates or additions, please email Joy Mayer, director of community outreach, at, or call her at 573-882-8182.
