Word of the National Enquirer’s attempts to extort Amazon owner Jeff Bezos has led to criminal investigations and offered subtle hints about his attitude toward editorial control at the Washington Post.


Regional news coverage from the KBIA newsroom, including:

  • Expected job cuts at the University of Missouri
  • High school athletes are at risk for concusssions
  • Missouri files for No Child Left Behind exemption


Eight hundred and seventy one high school students suffered concussions during last fall, according to a new survey conducted by the Missouri State High School Activities Association. Unsurprisingly, 75 percent of those concussions happened to football players.  State lawmakers made this survey mandatory last year, so there isn’t any previous data with which to compare it.
