2015 in Review: Nation and statewide news that had an impact on St. Louis this year

Marshall Griffin | St. Louis Public Radio
The Missouri Capitol in Jefferson City.

Not all of the news that you see and hear featured on St. Louis Public Radio comes from the St. Louis region itself—some of it comes from our reporters located in Jefferson City and Washington D.C. That would be Marshall Griffin and Jim Howard, respectively.

On Monday’s “St. Louis on the Air,” the two discussed the year’s biggest news from our nation’s capital and the capital of Missouri. 

Here’s some of what they discussed:

They also took a look at what will likely become big stories in 2016:

  • Election-year politics of 2016
  • Funding for a new NFL stadium
  • Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s legacy
