The news is everywhere, and it comes from every possible platform: print publications, cable TV, radio, Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, and hundreds of mobile apps not worth even getting into. There's so much news available, it can be difficult to cut through and get what you truly need or want to know.
Meanwhile, news providers constantly have to meet readers and viewers where they are and give them what they need, when they need it. We live in an on-demand world.
That's why the Missourian continues to innovate and experiment with new platforms (did you know we're on Snapchat?) for sharing news and interacting with our community.
Our latest effort is to adopt what might feel like "old" technology — email — as a way to cut through the noise and get you the news in a consistent, friendly format that you can access from a phone, desktop or device of your choosing every morning.
We invite you to help us by subscribing and giving us your feedback. You can log in to your account on ColumbiaMissourian.com and opt-in to our mailing list. If you're not a member, you can sign up with an email address at columbiamissourian.com/newsletters.
Our first email offering is a free daily newsletter that will give you a sampling of the news: a "centerpiece" feature and our most recent local news headlines, as well as our most recent local columns.
Soon, we'll offer more options. We will respond to audience feedback and create products that enlighten, inform and engage you.
We know we produce some of the best journalism (and journalists) in the country, and we want to make sure you don't miss it amid the noise.
