Join us this week for What’s Cooking as we welcome Tammie Holland to the show. Tammie is an Emmy nominated, St. Louis media veteran. She is the host of ‘This Week with Tammie Holland’ powered by the Brown & Crouppen Law Firm. Prior to her work with Brown & Crouppen, Tammie provided live radio entertainment programing in St. Louis for iHeart radio, overnight news updates for KSDK News Channel 5 and was a reporter and segment producer for ‘On Main Street,’ an Emmy award winning, Christian television show underwritten by Lutheran Hour Ministries.
Throughout Tammie’s career, she has always believed in using her platform to advocate for others, especially children and the disadvantaged. She also believes in the importance of telling St. Louis’ good news stories. In support of Tammie’s positivity, the Brown & Crouppen Law Firm promotes her good news stories on countless outdoor billboards and the sides of busses across the St. Louis metropolitan area.
In September of 2021, Tammie was given ‘The Key to the City,’ the highest honor bestowed by the Mayor of St. Louis, Tishaura O. Jones. In addition, by proclamation of the Missouri House of Representatives, September 22nd has been designated as ‘Tammie Holland Day’ in the City of St. Louis. Tammie’s contributions to radio have been preserved in the National Historic Collection and Oral History Project, LEGENDS: The Evolution and Legacy of Black Radio Culture at the Radio Preservation Task Force at the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
In May of 2023, Tammie joined the distinguished Inaugural 30, a group of African American women broadcasters whose unique contributions to radio on local, regional and national levels were recognized by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre before being inducted into the Library of Congress. Tammie is also a recipient of an Annie Malone Children & Family Services Child Advocate Award and a St. Louis Women in Media Award as presented by the National Coalition of 100 Black Women of Metropolitan St. Louis. She is also a recognized Leader in the Workplace by the YWCA of Greater St. Louis.
In the summer of 2021, Tammie was diagnosed with stage IV Colon Cancer. Instead of giving up on life, Tammie used her situation to educate others. She freely documented her experiences and promotes the importance of Colon cancer screenings and overall good health practices. In May 2022, she was recognized by the Foundation for Barnes Jewish Hospital and the Siteman Cancer Center at their annual Illumination gala. Tammie’s story of positivity and courage helped to raise well over 3 million dollars for cancer research at Siteman. Today, Tammie’s cancer is in remission. Above all of Tammie Holland’s accomplishments and experiences, she is most proud of her role as mother to her 16-year-old daughter, Meadow Grace. Happily they call St. Louis home.
