Welcome!

Welcome to the blog of the Utah Headliners Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists!

Check back here to be updated regularly on news, events and information dealing with journalism issues in Utah. You can also get the latest journalism news and info by visiting the SPJ’s website. Join and get involved!

As the nation’s oldest journalism society, the SPJ and its members have been working since 1909 to support working and student journalists and to further the goals of free speech.

Here in Utah, our chapter has been involved in efforts to preserve open access to government records and educating fellow journalists and the readers/viewers/listeners we serve on the importance of GRAMA, FOIA, etc.

Recently, the Utah SPJ launched a successful “Tour de FOI” that sent us from Logan to St. George and from Tooele to Moab offering tips on accessing public information and government records.

We’ve got a number of exciting programs in the works for 2006-2007. Join our chapter to get involved!

Speaking of which, you’ll want to check out our Utah SPJ Blog for the latest updates on media issues as well as links to help you do your job better (you’ll really like the GRAMA form generator link)!

If there’s anything I or the rest of the Utah Headliners board can do to help you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You can reach me at bwinslow@desnews.com

Thanks!
