KTVI Fox 2 anchor Mandy Murphey will host the June 2 event. Mandy Murphey is anchor of Fox 2 News at 5 and 9 p.m. Mandy became a full time anchor of FOX 2 News in January 1993, only a year and a half after she joined KTVI FOX 2 as the Contact 2 reporter. Mandy has been honored with 13 Emmy awards and 4 Edward R. Murrow awards. She prides herself on being an anchor who can report. In 2016, Mandy celebrated her 25th anniversary with KTVI. She has promoted numerous charitable organizations over the years.

"As a parent, I've watched the amazing young high school talent from the audience since my daughter won best supporting actress in the St. Louis High School Musical Awards two years ago," said Mandy Murphey. "It is a true honor to be the host this year for what has become THE biggest honor in the St. Louis area for musical theatre."

The St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards (SLHSMTA) are produced by The Fabulous Fox, The Muny and The Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation. This program is designed to celebrate outstanding achievement in high school musical theatre. Participating schools will have their productions evaluated by a panel of theatre professionals. The year-long adjudication process culminates in an awards ceremony modeled on the Tony Awards©. The winners of the Outstanding Actress and Outstanding Actor categories will travel to New York (all expenses paid) to compete in the National High School Musical Theatre Awards (Jimmy Awards©) program and to participate in a week-long professional development experience
