The Greater Cincinnati Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) has been named the national Small Chapter of the Year.

The award was presented Sunday, September 18 at the SPJ National Convention in New Orleans. It’s the second time in three years that the chapter has earned the honor.

Accepting on behalf of the chapter were President Tom McKee, Vice-President Jenny Wohlfarth, Treasurer Hagit Limor and Secretary Ginny McCabe.

UC Lunch with the Pros features "Accused" Podcast

By Huy Nguyen, UC SPJ Treasurer

Award-winning journalists from the Cincinnati Enquirer, Amber Hunt and Amanda Rossmann, visited the University of Cincinnati’s main campus on Sept. 28 to talk to journalism students about a serial podcast they created from their in-depth investigation into an unsolved 37-year-old murder case.

The event was organized by the UC student chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and sponsored by the Greater Cincinnati Pro Chapter of the SPJ.

Hunt and Rossmann said that the story about the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Andes, which was originally planned as a Sunday piece in the Enquirer, quickly evolved into a much bigger pursuit than they thought, leading to the year-long development of “Accused,” a multi-episode podcast that aired in September.
