Missouri Digital News - MO

The Journalist's Creed

What Is Missouri Digital News? Missouri Digital News is the Missouri School of Journalism's only fully converged newsroom. Newspaper, broadcast and new media students work ... See more together covering state government and political issues from MDN's statehouse office. MDN is operated by the State Government Reporting Program of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Selected journalism students are assigned to program's statehouse bureau for their Columbia reporting courses. In addition to MDN, stories prepared by the students are distributed to Missouri's newspapers, KBIA Radio in Columbia, KSMU Radio in Springfield, KOMU-TV in Columbia, The Columbia Missourian and KMOX Radio in St. Louis. With more than two dozen reporters in some semesters, the program is one of the largest statehouse bureaus in the U.S -- if not the largest. It has been providing coverage of Missouri government and politics since 1972. The director of the program is Phill Brooks, a senior faculty member of the School of Journalism, dean of the Missouri statehouse press corps and the Statehouse Correspondent for KMOX Radio -- the CBS-owned station in St. Louis. Because of the educational mission of the State Government Reporting Program, your comments are greatly appreciated. Your suggestions, reactions and even complaints help our students better understand the needs and interests of the public they are being trained to serve. Further, the more we hear from you, the better able we are to advise our profession on ways to make effective use of the new digital medium. So, please, take a few minutes to write us at MDNMail@mdn.org . Let us know if you think this service is valuable, additional information you would like us to provide and ways we could better structure the service. The Missouri Press Association, Missouri Broadcasters Association, KMOX Radio and KSMU Radio provide support for MDN's services. Phill Brooks
