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.
