Our Mission Statement
The Truman Media Network is dedicated to serving Truman State University and the greater Kirksville area in providing quality news and entertainment. Our organization acts as a learning lab for fledgling journalists and a creative outlet for curious students. We seek to educate, inform, and create discourse with our audience while seeking and reporting the truth.
Since 2013, the Truman Media Network has been a converged entity encompassing five outlets. Our weekly newspaper, the Index, publishes news, opinions, lifestyle content, and sports every Thursday during the school year. Similarly, TMN Television, our TV news station, broadcasts every Thursday at 5:30 pm on the on-campus channel 36. Our radio station, KTRM, broadcasts talk shows, live Truman sports games, and alternative music 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Detours Magazine, a travel magazine highlighting interesting destinations in the tri-state area of Missouri, Iowa and Illinois, publishes online biannually. And lastly, TMN Online houses all this content and more in one area, the TMN website.
