Best Journalist

Jason Rosenbaum, St. Louis Public Radio

Staff Pick

Jason Rosenbaum's mind is an omnivorous thing, so we're lucky he has an appetite for state and local politics. After spending four years in Jefferson City covering the capitol's power structure, he moved to St. Louis in 2010, working first at The Beacon, and now at St. Louis Public Radio (90.7 FM). Rosenbaum has proven himself a versatile reporter, shifting comfortably from radio and podcasting to print and photography — yes, he even takes his own pictures. But he's most prolific on Twitter, where he breaks news, gets into enlightening policy debates with insiders, and throws in nerdy asides on subjects like hip-hop and professional wrestling — that's what we mean by "omnivorous." He claims to have "legendary karaoke skills" as well, but that could not be confirmed as of press time.
