The Maneater

The Maneater

"The Maneater" student newspaper is the official, but independent, student-run newspaper of the University of Missouri. "The Maneater" editorial and advertising staffs are composed entirely of students with the exception of a professional business adviser and a receptionist. The newspaper has no affiliation to the Missouri School of Journalism. "The Maneater" is published twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Its official slogan is "You've been warned."

Its unofficial slogan is "The Maneater: Where life is a Hall & Oates song."


"The Maneater" was founded in 1955 by Joel Gold, then a sociology student, and Jim Willard, as Business Manager. Gold took over the former newspaper, then named the "Missouri Student." The "Missouri Student" was run by the Delta Upsilon fraternity, but Gold renamed it "The Maneater" to reflect a more aggressive news angle.

Regarding the name change, Gold wrote in the first issue of The Maneater: “The name ‘Missouri Student’ reflected the editorial policy of the former paper quite well. It signified nothing.”

Independent Newspaper

Since 1955, The Maneater has been an independent student publication.

Financially, "The Maneater" is a non-profit newspaper supported by a fully functional advertising staff. The newspaper is distributed free of charge. Although the university provides space for "The Maneater" offices in Brady Commons, the school's student union, it does not provide any additional funds to "The Maneater."

The editorial department of "The Maneater" is independent from any school government or organization, as well as the university itself.

MOVE Magazine

The newspaper staff also produces an entertainment biweekly called "MOVE Magazine." "MOVE" is aimed at local and national entertainment news and reviews. In 2006, "MOVE" featured interviews with actor Harrison Ford, comedian Carlos Mencia, rap artist MC Chris, and rock band Jimmy Eat World, among others. Recent interviews have included MTV VJ Dave Holmes, singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson and Death Cab For Cutie. Lindsay Eanet is the current editor.


The newspaper has been highly decorated by national and state organizations, including several ACP [ Pacemaker awards] , Society of Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence Awards and Missouri College Media Association Better Newspaper Contest awards.

In October 2007 it was announced that The Maneater had won the 2007 Pacemaker award, which is considered the Pulizer Prize of collegiate journalism. [ [ ACP - Contest Winners ] ]
