She also served as the director of news and information at Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis from 2005-2008.

Neuman has a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University, an executive MBA from Washington University and a bachelor’s degree from Reed College in Portland, Ore. Additionally, she is a 2015 graduate of Leadership St. Louis.

“We are excited to name Shula as the executive editor of St. Louis Public Radio,” said Tim Eby, general manager of St. Louis Public Radio. “Shula’s background and experience at St. Louis Public Radio, NPR and elsewhere, along with her extensive educational background, make her highly qualified for this opportunity.”
