The St. Louis Media History Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is proud to present this compilation of the history of St. Louis-area media.
Our group is tasked with research and procuring media history-related materials, which are then donated to local institutions, such as the St. Louis Public Library, where they are made available to the public for viewing and study.
Current members of the board are:
President:Ken OhlemeyerVice president:David SheetsSecretary:Sally Tippett RainsTreasurer:Bob Schmidt
Members:Bob Byrne -- Tony Cabanellas -- Don Corrigan -- Dave Garino -- Bill Greenblatt -- Kerry Manderbach -- Dan Martin
Avis Meyer -- Tom Pagano -- Ann Lemons Pollack -- Alvin Reid -- Eric Rothenbuhler -- Charley Taylor

In addition to the activities listed above, 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 one of our original board members.

All donations, both financial and material-related, are completely tax-deductible. If you worked in St. Louis media, we encourage you to contact us at to share your memories and discuss ways in which we may work together to preserve those memories. And we’d welcome financial donations to help our effort. Just click on the “Donate” button below to make a tax-deductible financial contribution.
