Talking with SDX winners

I’ve had the incredibly fun task of interviewing 2011 Sigma Delta Chi Award winners for a series of Studio SPJ podcasts. It’s easy to get caught up thinking the journalism industry is fraught with problems – cutback, layoffs, relevancy … and the list goes on. So reviewing these award-winning articles, photos and broadcasts is a refreshing reminder about all that is right with journalism. It’s a reminder of the tremendous responsibility journalists have as storytellers, watchdogs and preservers of history.

Check out some of the recent podcasts:

  • Corinne Reilly discusses her piece “A Chance in Hell,” a story of the daily life of U.S. military medics in Afghanistan published in The Virginian-Pilot. Listen online.
  • Matt Lakin of the Knoxville News Sentinel talks about his piece, “Pill Sick,” which exposes the world of prescription drug addiction. Listen online.
  • Sarah Stuteville discusses “The Return: One Marine’s story of a mission accomplished, but not really over,” which was published in Pacific Northwest Magazine. Listen online.

Stay Tuned:

And coming up at 10 a.m. EST on Thursday, July 19, join Studio SPJ producer Holly Fisher as she talks with Charles Lane. He, along with Naomi Starobin, won a Sigma Delta Chi Award in the category of Public Service in Radio Journalism for the piece “LIPA struggles to provide oversight of storm costs” for WSHU Public Radio in Fairfield, Conn. The SDX Awards Banquet will be July 20, 2012, in Washington, D.C. Tune in online.
