Kucher Stanislav is a modern journalist and publicist, TV and radio host, since last year he has been a member of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights, the author of the book "In One Breath". From November 2017 to October 2018, Stanislav is the editor-in-chief of the RBC Snob international project, and now he is the face of the international TV channel RTVI. He turned 46 in March 2018.
The journalist has worked in a huge number of socially and politically significant projects. And in all he manifests himself as an honest and direct person, a professional in his field.
Personality of Stanislav Kucher
The journalist grew up in a family of caring, socially responsible people with an active lifestyle. His father Alexander Kucher was the editor-in-chief of the periodical "Own Opinion" in St. Petersburg; mother Natalia is a writer and journalist. Stanislav absorbed their views and attitude to life from childhood.
Immediately after school, the young man left to enter MGIMO and already during his studies beganjournalist of Komsomolskaya Pravda. Even before graduation, Stanislav Kucher became interested in Russian-American relations, traveled together with a colleague hitchhiking the United States and interviewed famous people such as Bradbury, Spielberg, McCartney.
Stanislav Alexandrovich's track record includes work in various projects, where he acts as a journalist, columnist, editor-in-chief, author and presenter of information and analytical programs. Kucher is known as an extremely principled person, he does not yield under the pressure of the interests of the media owners and works exactly until the moment when his views and the views of his colleagues on the development of the project coincide. Starting his career in the 90s, Stanislav quickly realized the importance of his profession. In one interview he stated:
"Journalism before our eyes was turning from a craft into a missionary profession that could change the world, wake up compatriots, help turn the USSR into a new state … journalists understood that they were doing a great job…"
Inspired by the work of Listyev, Lyubimov, Pozner, Stanislav believes that the duty of a journalist is to be true to himself, live in good conscience, remain independent and cover all significant events for society.
Since 1993, he began filming news and documentaries for the RTR television channel. From 1995 to 1999, Kucher Stanislav worked on the TV-6 channel, where he first hosted "Forecasts of the Week", and then became the author and host of the "Observer" program. The informal reason for leaving the TV channel was the refusal to releasea compromising story about the media tycoon Gusinsky, a formal one - a lack of funding. With full journalistic staff, Kucher's team left TV-6 and continued to work on the project on the RTR channel.
This project by Kucher Stanislav was closed after the release of the program about the tragedy in Kursk. Then there was work on RTR in the program "Big Country", which was also closed after the scandalous release. After that, for some time the journalist lived and worked in America. Since 2002, Kucher has hosted various programs on TV and radio, collaborated with TVC, RBC, Avtoradio, Ekho Moskvy and Kommersant FM, National Geographic Traveler magazine.

In recent years, traveling a lot, the journalist became interested in Buddhism, which inspired him to write the book "In the same breath. Good stories".
The coachman in the Snob project
This magazine is the brainchild of Mikhail Prokhorov and has a print and electronic version.
“This is a one-of-a-kind discussion, information and public space for people who live in different countries, speak differentlanguages, but they think in Russian.”
Since September 2017, Snob Media has been owned by Marina Gevorkyan. The project has practically embodied for Stanislav the dream of such an international platform that will allow people from different professions, who think and are not indifferent, to have a dialogue about the future of Russia and the world. But in October, Kucher was forced to leave the project due to disagreements with Gevorkyan.
However, on December 5, 2018, the journalist began working as a presenter and columnist at the international media company RTVI.
I am convinced that the main processes and events that will determine the picture of the world in the middle of the 21st century will take place in the United States and Russia, and global russians living all over the world will play a huge role in shaping the future. RTVI is an ideal platform for such a discussion and, perhaps, the only media bridge between Russia and America today.
