You’ve reached the San Antonio chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists, the oldest organization representing journalists in the United States. We host area networking events and workshops and put on a large, annual fundraiser called Gridiron, an SNL-style political satire show that raises money for scholarships for local student journalists.
Speaking of our annual major fundraiser, Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant is in the works — with a healthy respect for COVID-19, we are going virtual this year — and we are set to debut in just a couple of weeks. Friday, Oct. 30, to be exact.
Our group of journalists-and-communications-experts-turned-amateur-thespians are trying hard to turn in another stellar performance (or so we let them think — encouragement is a good thing) and it’s almost show time. Our YouTube debut is set for Friday, Oct. 30, and there will be three more shows after that.
As usual, we will have some cool cameos — nope, no hints!
You just never know what you’re going to see in our rowdy, sometimes a little bawdy, but always in jest, show. Make yourself a promise to attend Gridiron 2020. Buy your tickets and/or ads here.
All fun aside, the money we raise with Gridiron funds one of the most important parts of our mission: supporting and encouraging the next generation of truth-tellers. Click on the scholarships tab on the home page and you’ll find profiles of current and past scholarship recipients. We’re proud of these young people and believe you will be, too.
