MU has launched a new news and features web site called Mizzou Wire.
“It’s a new web outlet for stories that come out of campus- these include research stories, student events and student accomplishments, and basically just interesting things that happen,” said Chris Blose, editor of the Mizzou Wire.
Blose, a 2004 graduate of the MU Journalism School, works with other writers, photographers, and designers to create the site.
A link on the MU homepage will help direct people to the Mizzou Wire site. “We’ll get a lot of internal readers, like staff, and faculty, but we’re also hoping to get the stories out to an external audience,” said Blose.
A decision on how often updates will be made to the site has yet to be made.
The site also includes a blog, meant to highlight various campus events.
