Join us on Friday, Oct. 4 at 1 p.m. Eastern / 10 a.m. Pacific when our guest on Studio SPJ will be journalist and author Seth Rosenfeld.
 
Rosenfeld, a former reporter of the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco Examiner, is the author of "Subversives, the FBI's War on Student Radicals and Reagan's Rise to Power."
 
He also is the winner of SPJ's Sunshine Award this year and a past winner (2003) of the SDX Foundation's
Eugene S. Pulliam First Amendment Award.
 
Both awards recognized Rosenfeld's brilliant and dogged work in peeling back layer after layer of secrecy though his skillful and persistent use of the Freedom of Information Act.
 
His fight to force the government to comply with the Act led to a series of court rulings that strengthened citizen access to federal public records.
 
It also forced the release of some 300,000 documents and resulted in a judgement of $1 million to pay his pro bono attorneys' fees.
 
Studio SPJ is an on-going series of conversations with journalists on topics of interest to the profession.
 
This episode is co-sponsored by the Northern California chapter of SPJ.
