St. Louis Public Radio

2015 Report to the Community


Conversations Connecting Communities

Conversation is the exchange of ideas, thoughts, and information by two or more people. For St. Louis Public Radio, creating  a space for these exchanges is the very core of what we do every day on-air, on line and in person.

Ferguson

On August 14, 2014, the St. Louis region was thrust into the world spotlight with the shooting death of Michael Brown and the subsequent unrest in Ferguson. Through our talk show, social media, and special events, the entire STLPR news and program teams dedicated countless hours covering the stories in Ferguson and engaging the community in discussions of the issues of race. 

Town Hall Forums with NPR’s Michel Martin

Just two weeks after the events in Ferguson began to unfold, STLPR held a town hall forum in Ferguson to discuss race, law enforcement and what steps were needed to heal the community. Moderated by NPR’s Michel Martin, more than 350 people turned out to hear  from and interact with a panel of law enforcement, government officials, clergy and social-justice leaders. Protestors, area residents and many concerned St. Louisans shared their experiences, thoughts and ideas. Martin returned to St. Louis in March to host a follow-up town hall event that was attended by 300-plus people.

We Live Here

To keep the conversations going about issues of race and culture, our newsroom created We Live Here, a multi-platform project that explores the issues of race, class, power, and poverty. Through bi-weekly podcasts, events, and activities, STLPR is engaging current and new audiences across the St. Louis region and across the country. We Live Here is one of three STLPR podcasts that listeners can explore beyond our traditional broadcast streams. The other two podcasts are Cut & Paste, about arts and culture, and Politically Speaking, covering government and politics.

“We Live Here is a unique endeavor that might not have been possible without the generous support of individuals and foundations whose interest is community development and an informed democracy."

- St. Louis Public Radio General Manager Tim Eby

One Year In Ferguson  


Diversity Fellowship

Our diversity fellowship is a learning opportunity for new reporters interested in covering issues of race, ethnicity, and class. After working with two talented fellows, in 2015 STLPR employed a dedicated reporter/producer to expand our coverage of these issues and to mentor future fellows within our diversity program.

Political Coverage of 2016

As we look forward to 2016, a Presidential election year, STLPR is committed to enhancing our already robust coverage of the issues and candidates on local, state and national ballots. We will explore new ideas for integrating our on-air and online coverage with social media and in-person events. Here are a few of the things we have planned: daily news coverage; Politically Speaking podcasts; St. Louis on the Air segments; candidate/issue forums; debate watching parties in the Public Media Commons; a visit from NPR’s Senior Washington Editor Ron Elving at the STLPR Annual Dinner; and The Capitol Steps will perform a staged musical, comedic take on the political season.

Public Radio In Person

Throughout the year, STLPR hosted many signature events, as well as two event series, to engage people in discussion and to learn about the people, programs, products and property in our community. Together, more than 10,000 people attended events in 2015. Featured among these events were visits by The Moth Radio Hour, StoryCorps and Ask Me Another.  Locally, we experienced food, music, comedy, theater, storytelling and debate in our Kitchen Sink and Public Radio on Tap series.

St. Louis on the Air and Cityscape produced two town hall meetings in Ferguson in August and March. The events, moderated by NPR’s Michel Martin, were recorded for broadcast for listeners in St. Louis and 25 other public radio stations across the country.  More than 650 people attended these two forums.

Library & Storytelling

St. Louis Public Radio’s multimedia project, We Live Here, explored race, class, and diversity with the help of the St. Louis Public Library, the St. Louis Storytelling Festival, and the general public at cultural festivals and community events.

Community voices received exposure through Sounding Boards placed at four libraries (Baden, Barr, Divoll, and Walnut Park) and at several cultural events throughout the city of St. Louis. Residents were asked to recall their relevant experiences, interactions, and biases realized before and after the events in Ferguson.  The station received several hundred responses to the prompts. These responses were used to direct the conversations on the We Live Here podcast. 

Additionally, an entire segment of the St. Louis Storytelling Festival centered on race took place at UMSL at Grand Center.  The stories, and the discussion following the stories, provided perspective and understanding on experiences in the lives of a diverse group of participants and audience members.

Public Media Commons

On September 13, 2014 a new collaboration of the Nine Network of Public Media, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and St. Louis Public Radio began with the opening of the Public Media Commons — a 9,000-square-foot, open-air media space in the Grand Center Arts District of St. Louis. The Commons is intended to bring people together for multi-media experiences that stimulate creative thinking. More than 1,000 people took place in the inaugural event, which included food, music, and the screening of original video content.
