50 Years On: Editorial Independence in Student Journalism Webinar

The Alligator has a long history of fighting for First Amendment rights and protecting free speech and the public’s right to know. Fifty years ago, then-editor Ron Sachs was at the forefront of the controversy that forever changed the newspaper—and its name. Hear from Sachs and retired UF journalism professor Jean Chance on why one of the Alligator’s most prominent stories is about the paper itself and the student journalists who fought for, and won, editorial independence. Moderated by Master Lecturer Mike Foley. As you heard in yesterday’s webinar, the Alligator is printing one day per week and our online content is stronger than ever. We are adapting to the world around us to continue serving as an accurate, reliable news source for UF students, Gainesville residents and beyond. Can you help make that possible?
