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.
He flew with President George Bush as he caught his first look at the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, and he spent a month in Libya, reporting award-winning stories as NATO bombs fell on Tripoli.
Before joining “Morning Edition” in 2012, David Greene was a foreign correspondent for NPR in Moscow. While there, he took the 6,000 mile Trans-Siberian Railway, writing about the second trip in his new book “Midnight in Siberia: A Train Journey into the Heart of Russia.”
In October, Greene returned to Russia and Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula that Russia seized from Ukraine earlier this year.
St. Louis Public Radio listeners know David Greene for his work with NPR's Morning Edition, and his years covering Russia and the White House. But before he joined NPR in 2005, Greene was a newspaper man. He credits an internship with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for jump-starting his career.
