The Kaleidoscope Weekly is a free weekly regional newspaper spanning across south-central Missouri, with a focus on news without the negative! It was designed to be upbeat, encouraging, and a spotlight for local culture, businesses, events and writers. Even the name Kaleidoscope was carefully chosen to reflect the goals for the paper. Most people associate a Kaleidoscope with a cylinder containing loose, brightly colored glass, and mirrors which creates a beautiful picture as it is turned. The effect is a constantly changing pattern of shaper and color, just like the pages each week in The Kaleidoscope Weekly.
The paper is family owned and operated by Brady Management Solutions with virtual offices in St. James, Maryville, and St. Louis, Missouri.
The Kaleidoscope Weekly distributes 6,000 print copies to over 80 locations in the following communities and counties (see photo below):
