Ohio SPJ to host annual award celebration in Cincinnati on Oct. 24

From Greater Cincinnati Society of Professional Journalists
A Note from Chapter President Tom McKee:

I just bought my tickets for the SPJ Ohio event of the year – the Ohio SPJ Awards, which will kick off at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24. We look forward to seeing everyone there.

This year, the Greater Cincinnati Pro Chapter is hosting the annual program, which honors the best journalism in the state.

The venue for the program will be a lot of fun – aboard the Belle of Cincinnati, a riverboat excursion – docked just across the Ohio River in Newport, Kentucky.

We’ll go on a two-hour cruise on the Ohio River and enjoy a buffet lunch before the awards presentation. The cost is $50 per person, which includes lunch and the cruise. A cash bar will be available.

You may purchase tickets, get directions and find out more information on our Eventbrite page:
The Ohio SPJ Awards are jointly managed by the Central Ohio, Cincinnati and Cleveland professional chapters of the Society of Professional Journalists. The statewide contest each year honors the best of Ohio’s online, print, radio, television, trade and college journalism. Visit the new Website at
