Join us on Saturday, Feb. 20 at noon eastern when the next episode of Studio SPJ will examine a new national movement aimed at strengthening press freedom for student journalists.
Our guests will be Frank Lomonte, director of Student Press Law Center and John Tagliareni and Tom McHale, two veteran high school journalism advisors in New Jersey.
All three men have been advocating for legislation known as the New Voices Act, which would restore, by way of state-level protection, the rights that the U.S. Supreme Court stripped away from students in Hazelwood.
The bill, which passed in North Dakota and curently pending in New Jersey, applies at both the K-12 and college levels, and importantly also includes retaliation protection for student advisers.
The national SPJ enacted a resolution at the September convention calling on its members to get involved in supporting New Voices legislation in their own states.
We'll talk to Lomonte about the national effort currently taking place in 20 states. McHale and Tagliarini will discuss their efforts to advocate for the bill in New Jersey.
Region 1 Director Jane Primerano will serve as host of the 30-minute program, which is co-sponsored by the New Jersey chapter of SPJ.

Wisconsin television anchor/reporter Jennifer Livingston made headlines of her own in October went she responded on air to a viewer who criticized her as being overweight. The incident sparked a national discussion about obesity, self-esteem and bullying. It also put Livingston in the unusual position of being part of the news rather than the person reporting it. Now that a few months have passed, Livington has agreed to be our guest on Studio SPJ. The half-hour conversation, hosted by the Milwaukee chapter of SPJ, will air live on Jan. 3 at 1 p.m. Eastern. A graduate of Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa, Livingston started in 1997 as a general assignment reporter for WKBT in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The viewer sent an email to Livingston telling her to "reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle." Livingston responded with a 4-minute on-air segment in which she acknowledged being overweight but said the viewer's words were cruel. She went on to say: "To all the children out there who feel lost, who are struggling with your weight, your sexual preference, your disability, even the acne on your face, listen to me right now: do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies." A YouTube clip of Livingston's remarks has drawn more than 10.5 million views. The incident also lead to Livingston making an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
