Hi fellow SPJ-ers!
We have a busy, busy upcoming week filled with both fun and important events! First, we will not be having a meeting at our usual time this Tuesday, instead we’d like to invite you to our second-ever battle of the bands this Thursday at the Union! Tickets will be sold all week in Scripps Hall for $4 or buy a ticket at the door for just $5!
We’ll be starting the night off at 5:00 pm in Scripps 111 with a question-answer session with our three panelists/judges, including Jason Stone, famed DJ of Power 105 and — most importantly — Master of the Jambulance!
After, join us at 8:00 at the Union for our Battle of the Bands. Bands include: Millions of Michael Jordans, Matt Reed & TGP, and We Came From Apes with special Pre-Battle Entertainment by Dr. Bob Stewart, Director of the Journalism school, and The Bob Stewart Band.
THEN, Saturday, February 26, Ohio University’s SPJ is hosting the first-ever Ohio Sunshine Summit in Walter Hall. Starting at 10 we will be discussing the latest press freedom issues confronting student journalists today. With students from public universities across Ohio we are excited to host guest speakers and respected journalists such as Dennis Hetzel, Executive Director of Ohio Newspaper Association, Chip Mahaney,Director of Digital Content for the E.W. Scripps Company, and even Hagit Limor, President of the Society of Professional Journalists.
See you there!
Gina Mussio, OU SPJ Secretary
