The recent events of the past several weeks have shaped our entire region in a number of different ways. From channeling outrage to questioning the role of local government and police, St. Louis Public Radio has been providing a forum for these vital and important discussions. St. Louis Public Radio and NPR's Michel Martin hosted a panel discussion called, “Ferguson and Beyond: A Community Discussion,” on the evening of August 28 at Wellspring Church in Ferguson.

St. Louis Public Radio’s Young Friends partnered with NPR’s Generation Listen to host a forum on the impact of community activism. It was a great opportunity for our young listeners to engage with one another, as well as the expert panel.
St. Louis Public Radio is known for bringing you beautiful classical music in the evening and around the clock on 90.7-3. But some of our board members are a little more hands on in an effort to deliver those sonorous presentations.
You listen to St. Louis Public Radio for our thorough coverage of news that matters in the region, news that helps shape your livelihood and well-being, and you rightly expect our verve to deliver this vital news to match our thoroughness.
And what better way to demonstrate this thoroughness than through a donut taste-off on National Donut Day!

St. Louis Public Radio invited staff members and their Grand Center neighbors to the Community Room on the first floor to watch a live-stream of two World Cup matches featuring Team USA. Knowledgeable soccer, ahem, futbol fans among the staff were useful to explain why losing to Germany in the group stage was still a cause for celebration. Further, watching with co-workers lessened the sting of losing to Belgium in the round of 16.
