Standard Bearer of Journalism turns 101

Kevin Z. Smith, President of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and Assistant Professor of Journalism at Fairmont State University
Founded in 1909, the Society for Professional Journalism is the oldest journalism organization in the United States with membership traditionally derived from people engaged in legacy media such as print, radio, and television. The meteoric rise of the digital journalist, bloggers for example, and their relevancy to the mission of the SPJ has become somewhat of a contentious issue within the organization. The president of the society joins us to talk about this recent phenomena and, as the standard bearer of professional journalism, the official position of the organization vis-à-vis the digital journalist.
