INDIANAPOLIS – The Society of Professional Journalists and Columbia Journalism Review are pleased to announce a new partnership that will bring more journalism news to SPJ members.

Although SPJ already provides members with Quill magazine, webinars, training and other how-to information, the partnership with CJR will provide SPJ members more in-depth articles about the rapidly changing landscape of the journalism industry.

“Both organizations work to foster strong journalistic values and support a vibrant free press, so this type of partnership meets both our missions,” said Paul Fletcher, SPJ National President. “It will help augment what we already provide SPJ members through industry and issue-oriented content, in addition to the professional development and networking we currently provide.”

Within the next couple weeks, SPJ will share CJR articles in its newsletters, on its website, via social media and through other communications channels.

"Our goal is to have CJR's rich content in front of all who care about journalism, social discourse, and First Amendment issues," said Interim Editor in Chief Vanessa Gezari. "Toward that end, SPJ is a perfect partner to help connect our content to their targeted and engaged membership of journalism professionals, academics, and students."

SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to informing citizens; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and fights to protect First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press. Support excellent journalism and fight for your right to know. Become a member, give to the Legal Defense Fund, or give to the Sigma Delta Chi Foundation.

CJR’s mission is to be the intellectual leader in the rapidly changing world of journalism. It is the most respected voice on press criticism, and it shapes the ideas that make media leaders and journalists smarter about their work. Through its fast-turn analysis and deep reporting, CJR is an essential venue not just for journalists, but also for the thousands of professionals in communications, technology, academia, and other fields reliant on solid media knowledge.
