Andrea Henderson joined St. Louis Public Radio as a reporter for Sharing America, a four-station collaborative news initiative covering race, identity and culture. Most recently, she was a  digital reporter for the NPR podcast Code Switch as well as a producer for Weekend All Things Considered.

Her passion for storytelling began at a weekly newspaper in her hometown of Houston, Texas, where she covered a wide variety of stories including hurricanes, transportation and Barack Obama’s 2009 Presidential Inauguration. In Texas, she covered arts and culture for the Houston African-American business publication, Empower Magazine. She also covered the arts for Syracuse’s Post-Standard and The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina.

Sharing America, which is funded by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, has been covering issues of race and culture for the past year. In March, the partner stations released Fixed Odds, a project exploring the impact of problem gambling on communities of color and the extent to which states provide money for problem gambling treatment.

As the Digital Product Lead, Brendan works with departments across the station in maintaining the digital presence of St. Louis Public Radio while also managing the station’s digital communications. Brendan comes to St. Louis Public Radio following an internship with The Nine Network of Public Media, working on the Emmy Award-winning American Graduate initiative. He is a graduate of Saint Louis University where he studied journalism, visual communication and Italian.
