Star-Journal’s Tuesday print edition to return


WARRENSBURG — After more than a year as a weekly publication, the Warrensburg Star-Journal is bringing back its Tuesday print edition.

The first Tuesday edition will be published Sept. 14, returning the Star-Journal to a twice-weekly publication.

“Ever since the Sedalia Democrat took over ownership of the Star-Journal in October, the most frequent question we receive is about additional publication days. Due to the numerous requests and positive community feedback about the paper, we’ve decided to make the change,” Publisher Will Weibert said. “Our whole team is excited to continue our promise of improving the Star-Journal, and bringing back the Tuesday edition is the next step.”

The price of a single copy of the Star-Journal will remain $1. However, the monthly subscription rate will increase due to the change in print frequency. The new monthly rate will begin Oct. 1. 

Print subscribers also receive full access to warrensburgstarjournal.com and the e-edition, a digital replica of the print edition. To activate this access, visit the website or contact customer service.

“Adding another print edition means our newsroom will be able to include more content for our print readers, and advertisers will have another chance to reach the Star-Journal audience,” Editor Nicole Cooke said. “We’ve had some online-only content due to limited print space, but more content will now reach print with the Tuesday edition.”

As newspapers across the country are closing or reducing publication days, the Star-Journal is upending the trend by adding a print edition. That is made possible by area advertisers and subscribers who continue to support their local newspaper after more than 156 years. Quality community journalism can’t exist without the support of the community.

For more information, call the customer service center at 866-204-7515 or email circulation@phillipsmedia.com. The Star-Journal office, 101 E. Market St. Suite D., is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
