Kimberly Springer is overly-degreed with a master’s of information science from the University of Michigan and a doctorate from Emory University in women’s and gender studies. After teaching at Williams College, Portland State University and King’s College London for a total of 12 years, she realized that she consistently had side projects in public and community radio.
She was associate producer and scriptwriter for the Peabody Award-winning series, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” She produced the WAMC Northeast Public Radio series, “The Good Fight: Activism at the Turn of the 21st Century,” which won an RTNDA Murrow Award for Best Regional Series in 2001. Kimberly returned to school in 2012 to learn the digital and archives/preservation skills that she brings to St. Louis Public Radio as Engagement Producer.
She’s mildly obsessed with London, having been an expat there for seven years. She's also prepared for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
