VATICAN CITY (KSDK) - A St. Louisan is at the front and center of the conclave process.

Greg Burke is the Vatican's new senior media advisor.

He came to Rome at the end of 1988. He worked for Time magazine and FOX. Then, he got a call to come to the Vatican. At first, he turned down the job offer. He said he saw it as a good job, but a tough job. They came back to him and he agreed to take the position.

Burke said things got busy after Pope Benedict XVI resigned on February 11.

NewsChannel 5's Mike Bush spoke with Burke in Rome about the conclave and how long it could take to select the next pope. Click on the video player to watch the interview.
