Development Coordinator

Zack Stovall earned a degree in political science and philosophy from Rhodes College, where he served as the humor editor for The Sou'wester, the college's student newspaper. Moving back home to Little Rock, Ark., he covered national and statewide politics for the Arkansas News Bureau as a staff writer and Web content editor. Upon moving to St. Louis, Zack began freelance and contract writing for a global manufacturing firm, small communications firms, as well as media outlets, including the St. Louis Beacon. Zack has been a guest on MSNBC, written for Memphis Magazine and has spoken on professional panels on subjects ranging from politics, new media implications on the field of journalism, and regularly writes humor articles for various outlets. Zack serves St. Louis Public Radio as a development coordinator, strategizing and facilitating membership engagement, donor relationships, and communications in the development department.

While we are all eager to hear from our guest of honor, Morning Edition host David Greene, at St. Louis Public Radio’s annual dinner, we are equally excited to see what amazing food and wine pairings Chef Colucci concocts!

Unlike your typical restaurant meal, where you might try your hand at choosing a wine that will best match your entrée choice (think white wine with fish, or red wine with beef), at Talk, Toast, Taste the wine takes center stage.

The events of August 2014 in the St. Louis region – not only the death of Michael Brown, but the way the city responded – captured the nation’s attention and highlighted the racial tensions that permeate the region.

But what happens when that attention wanes? What happens when the national reporters leave?

Morning Edition’s David Greene is returning to St. Louis as the guest of honor at St. Louis Public Radio’s Annual Dinner, Talk, Toast, Taste on Thursday, March 26.  From the basement of the White House to the streets of Moscow, David Greene has spent nearly a decade at NPR connecting listeners with the important stories happening around them.

  The unmistakable egg-shaped mobile recording studio of StoryCorps spent a month parked in St. Louis last fall recording the conversations of dozens of St. Louisans.  Among those whose memories were captured were mother and daughter Colleen Starkloff and Meaghan Breitanstein, who came together to remember Max Starkloff, a husband, father, and  leader in the disability rights movement. Their story was broadcast on NPR this month.
