St. Louis Radio: Tina Pamintuan New CEO Of St. Louis Public Radio

Tina Pamintuan
Tina Pamintuan has more than 20 years of experience working in public media as a journalist, educator and station leader, and she’ll put her expertise to work in shaping the future of St. Louis Public Radio as its new CEO.

University of Missouri–St. Louis Chancellor Kristin Sobolik announced Pamintuan’s appointment on Monday after a nationwide search. Pamintuan will begin her new position on Dec. 1.

“I am excited that Tina Pamintuan will join our community as the CEO of St. Louis Public Radio,” Sobolik said. “Tina has a foundational appreciation of journalism and public media and its crucial role in a free society. Her broad leadership experience and passion for people make her the ideal person to lead STLPR during this time of intense societal and cultural change.”

“The station is a huge asset to the St. Louis region and beyond, and I look forward to collaborating with Tina and the rest of our station colleagues as we work together to engage, educate and empower our community.”

Pamintuan is coming to St. Louis after three years as the general manager at KALW (91.7 FM) in San Francisco, where she directed the station’s operations, fundraising, programming and editorial teams and served as the liaison for the station's FCC license holder, the San Francisco Unified School District.

“My work in journalism and public media has always centered people and their stories. As a leader, I want to create possibility and belonging in our industry so that staff are supported to do their best work and continue growing at every stage of their careers,” Pamintuan said.

“I’d like to see St. Louis Public Radio take bold steps to meaningfully connect with new and existing audiences across both perceived and real differences. I know from experience that this kind of work takes deep listening, self-awareness, and genuine collaboration. There’s no question that I’m going to look to the St. Louis community to be a full partner in this endeavor.”

Before moving into leadership at KALW, Pamintuan founded and directed the audio journalism program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at the City University of New York. There, she taught courses in radio news writing and reporting, news magazine production, podcasting, audio documentary and oral history and also managed and produced campus radio and podcast productions during her almost 12 years there.
