Fox 2 Reporter Tim Ezell Speaks at Spring 2019 Media Talk

Fox 2 Feature Reporter and Pastor, Tim Ezell, joins the MBU Media Talk series.


Tim Ezell will open the Spring 2019 MBU Media Talk series on Tuesday, March 26 at Missouri Baptist University. The free speaker series will take place in MBU’s Pillsbury Chapel and Dale Williams Fine Arts Center from noon to 1:00 p.m.

After working at Fox 2 News for 16 years where he served as the comic relief on News in the Morning, Ezell retired in 2014 to become a full-time pastor at the newest location of The Journey-St. Louis in South County.

Ezell recently re-joined the Fox 2 team resuming his original role as a feature reporter as well as now co-hosting the new Fox 2 show, “The Thread.”

“The Thread,” a Fox 2 show celebrating the people of St. Louis and all that they do in the community, airs Saturday mornings at 8:30 a.m.

Dr. Amanda Staggenborg, assistant professor of public relations and instructional coordinator of undergraduate communications, is the founder and coordinator of the MBU Media Talk series.

For years, the talks have inspired communications students and offered a glimpse into the professional world by showcasing leaders in public relations, journalism, broadcast media and strategic communications.

The addition of Ezell will highlight how to communicate within the church and how to communicate as a Christian outside of the church’s walls.

“Tim Ezell is inspirational and as a former pastor, displays compassion and kindness in every story he tells while showing the best of St. Louis,” said Staggenborg.

Each MBU Media Talk speaker is selected to represent various types of communication-related professions in St. Louis.

Previous MBU Media Talk speakers include: Missouri Governor Michael L. Parson, KSDK news anchor Christina Coleman, St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bill McClellan and many more.
