MU curators approve St. Louis Public Radio merger

November 23rd, 2013 in News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - University of Missouri curators have approved the merger of university-owned St. Louis Public Radio with the online St. Louis Beacon newspaper.

The National Public Radio affiliate is based at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and one of three public radio stations owned by the university system. The Beacon is a nonprofit news site started in 2008 by former St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporters and editors.

The merger will also mean more involvement by the University of Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia with its sister St. Louis campus.
