Pardon our dust!

We are proud to annouce that a new website is underway! In the meantime, St. Louis Media History Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization is proud to present this portal of the history of St.Louis-area media.

The St. Louis Media History Foundation is actively involved in pursuing all aspects of preserving local media history. We have an oral history effort in which media veterans are encouraged to share their memories for posterity.

 

The Foundation also maintains the St. Louis Media Halls of Fame and has established a college scholarship in the name of Joe Pollack, who was an original board member. All donations, both financial and material-related, are tax-deductible. If you worked in St.Louis media, we encourage you to contact us and share your memories and discuss ways in which we may work together to preserve those memories. Financial donations to help our efforts are also welcome.
