Local news needs your support
Now more than ever, journalism – and we’re talking insightful, relevant journalism – is needed in our Missouri communities.
From the Coronavirus to a presidential election later this year, news consumers need more than ever to have reporters on the front lines of news coverage to keep you informed about the issues and stories that impact our region.
But all this reporting power is expensive. Make no mistake, very few reporters are overpaid. They often work long hours and make personal sacrifices to stay on the job – all to keep you informed.
It’s no secret that printed newspapers are struggling financially and have been for a few years. Many newspapers have disappeared from the media landscape.
That’s why the Daily Star - Journal and our sister newspapers are taking the extraordinary step in asking you to help us pay for the cost of gathering the news. We’re asking those who see the value in journalism to make a tax-deductible donation to the Daily Star - Journal. We’ve provided a link to our donation page.
Your donation, whether big or small, will keep our reporters asking questions, taking pictures and recording sound bites. It will keep our reporters in the city council and school board meetings, on the sidelines of the football game and tackling the issues that matter to you.
So if you find value in what we do please consider helping us continue to bring you the news.
