About St. Louis Public Radio

St. Louis Public Radio is a news organization and NPR member station, and is a service of the University of Missouri - St. Louis. We operate by the same guiding principles as NPR and provide our audiences with news and programs that are significant to their communities and their world.

We Deliver Accuracy & Understanding:

Local journalism has the power to shape our communities. We take that responsibility seriously, going beyond the headlines to provide the accuracy and understanding our region deserves.

We ask difficult questions and push the boundaries of storytelling, bringing context and humanity to the news and ideas that affect life in the metro area.

We Reflect The Voices Of Our Community:

Our community isn’t one-dimensional, and neither are we. Through our stories, our staff, and our sources, we strive to represent a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.

This is a point of pride for our team, and we want that diversity to enrich the way we speak and write. We encourage staff to let their personalities shine in writing and on air.

We Engage Our Region In Crucial Conversations:

In a polarized world, public dialogue is more important than ever before. We bring people together to share stories and talk about issues and ideas without judgment.

We foster conversation with a tone that is calm, conversational, and approachable.

“I love my internship at STLPR! The people I work with are so kind and I am given important training that prepares me well for a job after graduation. I am not asked to do menial tasks and instead I am given important projects. I feel well respected, and I can always ask questions when needed. I’d highly recommend the opportunity to intern here. ”
