After more than 30 years at the desk of KSDK News Channel 5, journalist Jennifer Blome is retiring from the news business and joining her fellow animal lovers as the Director of Humane Education at the APA.
The APA is thrilled to have well-known broadcast journalist and animal advocate, Jennifer Blome, joining our organization. Jennifer’s love of animals is no secret to the many viewers of Today in St. Louis, where she hosted Sammy’s Stars, a daily segment featuring adoptable homeless animals in our area. Many of the APA’s own pets found their families through Sammy’s Stars.
Jennifer is also no stranger to the APA. For many years, she partnered with us for our annual Canine Carnival, where she’s acted as event emcee as well as the Grand Marshal for our Pooch Parade. Her lifelong passion for helping homeless pets and her talent for speaking to our community make her the perfect director for our humane education program.
We warmly welcome this talented and compassionate member of our community to our team as our representative of humane education in the St. Louis area. And we can’t wait to meet her three pets- two adopted stray pups named Joey and Jake, as well as an Irish wolfhound named Maximum Cuteness!
