During the University of Missouri Board of Curators' two-day meeting at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the board unanimously approved the merger of the non-profit news organizations St. Louis Public Radio and the St. Louis Beacon, which is expected to be completed next month.
Leadership at both organizations has been planning the merger for more than a year.
St. Louis Public Radio’s license is held by the University of Missouri Curators, and the merger required the board’s approval.
The 113th U.S. Congress has been in session for 5 weeks. Host Don Marsh checked in with the St. Louis Beacon’s Washington correspondent Rob Koenig to get an update on the activities of the Missouri and Illinois delegations.
