A graduate of the University of Missouri with degrees in journalism, philosophy and film studies, Zachary Reger‘s primary interests lie in political reporting, media production and social philosophy.
Previously, he has worked as a copywriter for A.T. Still University’s Still Magazine, an archives research intern at NBC News, a reporter for the Kirksville Daily Express and Columbia Missourian, a videographer for the University of Missouri, a post production intern for Forge Apollo and 4th Row Films, and a digital producer for KOMU 8 News.

While an undergraduate, Zach completed a philosophy departmental thesis on Missouri’s mid-20th century constitutional reforms in nomination and appointment processes for state judges — the so-called “Missouri Plan” of merit-based judicial selection. He graduated with bachelor’s degrees from the University of Missouri in May 2017.
