INDIANAPOLIS -- Studio SPJ will kick off a series of podcasts called "The Road to Nashville" that will preview the upcoming Excellence in Journalism 2014 conference on Sept. 4-6, which is co-hosted by the Society of Professional Journalists and the Radio Television Digital News Association.

Ken Paulson will be the guest for the first of these broadcasts, which has been rescheduled to be at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday, Aug. 21.

Paulson is the dean of Middle Tennessee State University's College of Mass Communication. He previously served as president of the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University, as president of the Newseum in Washington D.C. and as editor-in-chief at USA Today.

We'll be talking to Paulson about Freedom Sings, a musical program at EIJ14 featuring songs that were once banned, as well as the tribute planned for the late John Seigenthaler, the former editor of The Tennessean and founder of the First Amendment Center.

Now starting its fifth year of Internet radio broadcasts, Studio SPJ has new theme music, composed by SDX President Robert Leger and performed by Ocotillo, a duo of Leger and his wife Cindy. Tune in and check it out.

To call into the program with questions, call 347-857-2441.
