Lindsay Toler joined the St. Louis Public Radio as digital engagement producer in January 2018. A native of Dallas, Texas, Lindsay first moved to the Show-Me State to study at the University of Missouri, where she received Bachelor’s degrees in journalism and sociology and a certificate in multicultural studies.
Lindsay’s journalism career has taken her around the world. She reported on terrorism, fashion and politics for the Associated Press bureau in London. She covered gymnastics at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games for the Olympic News Service and wrote about life in Beijing for The Dallas Morning News. She also worked for The Seattle Times and a weekly community newspaper in Washington state. She then joined the Peace Corps as a health education volunteer in Moldova, the poorest country in Europe.
Lindsay moved to St. Louis in October 2011, just as the St. Louis Cardinals were going up against her hometown in the World Series — and she’s been a Cardinals fan ever since. She covered south St. Louis County for Patch.com, wrote the news blog for the Riverfront Times and worked as St. Louis Magazine’s first-ever online staff writer.
As St. Louis Public Radio’s engagement specialist, Lindsay has her dream job: talking to public radio listeners about the news on social media. In her spare time, Lindsay enjoys kickboxing, reading tarot cards, and going to movies by herself. She lives in Tower Grove South with her partner Mike and schnoodlehuahua Persie.
