Star Magazine is a Sunday staple that focuses on Kansas Citians, and it is consistently one of the most-read Sunday sections in The Kansas City Star. Advertising opportunities include special sections on health care, home decor and Kansas City trends.

Let our experienced national sales team assist you with your planning and media schedule. From display advertising to inserts and specialty products, our national team has the knowledge to help you reach your objectives.

Neighborhood News is a tabloid-size section targeted to three zones. The zoned sections contain information specific to a local community and a calendar of events specific to a geographical area. Each section features news on schools, government and local newsmakers. This is the place where your kid's soccer team or your neighbor's interesting hobby may be featured.

Extend your marketing frequency through shared costs. The Star's co-op advertising department will access co-op funds, develop co-op-approved ads and process claim and billing forms to provide a seamless co-op advertising experience.
Inserts are a destination for readers and one of the most read sections of The Kansas City Star. Whatever you sell, there's an insert reader who is in the market for your product or service, looking for your message. Whether your message is delivered as a preprint or Star print-and-deliver insert you can target your message to subscribers, nonsubscribers, metro-wide or down to the Zip code.
