A.J. Feather

Journalist, Developer

I'm a Missouri native currently seeking a dual masters in computer science and journalism from Columbia University in New York City. Every week I also host an awesome podcast called "Integrate" with my friend Mikah, which you can find at Integrate.FM.

Before moving to New York, I obtained undergraduate degrees in journalism and economics from the University of Missouri-Columbia. In Columbia, I hosted a weekly show called "Talking Politics" for KBIA, the local NPR member station and produced, wrote and anchored video for Newsy.com way too early in the morning.

There has never been a political column I did not enjoy reading or an Apple product I did not enjoy using.

MU Student Life's Film Crew prepares for Tap Day

With Tap Day just around the corner, Student Life's film crew is gearing up to live stream the festivities Friday. Jonathan Butler spends more time in the MUTV Studio than he does at home this semester. After graduating from the Trulaske College of Business at MU last semester with a degree in marketing, Butler started focusing on his position as co-director of film crew, a position in which he previously only worked part-time.

"Without the help of Sam Hustis, my co-director, this job would be impossible," said Butler. "This is more than a one man job."

Butler's working with his team to finish up a number of projects before setting up the live stream of Tap Day. Tuesday, his focus was the Kansas City alumni scholarship video, which will be used promote the Kansas City alumni scholarship.
