SPC Statement on Rodney Sieh
Written by Josh Cradduck   
Monday, 16 September 2013 12:27
Statement from the Syracuse Press Club Board of Directors on the imprisonment of former Post-Standard copy editor Rodney Sieh: 

The Syracuse Press Club calls upon our US senators from New York, Liberian authorities and other lawmakers to push for the release of Rodney Sieh, a man who served our CNY community in the Syracuse press corp as a copy editor at The Post-Standard.  We need to advocate for our colleagues. Mr. Sieh's imprisonment is a detriment to the free press concept, and represents a threat to all society that atrocities will be concealed if journalists are silenced by the threat of jail. We urge his immediate release.

Per the Committee to Protect Journalists, Sieh was jailed and his Liberian news outlet "FrontPageAfrica" was shut down after failing to pay damages from a libel conviction. Sieh, his publication and another reporter were sued after the paper reported official findings from an official government document."

NewsChannel 9 Gets a "Music Makeover"
Written by Josh Cradduck

If you watched WSYR-TV NewsChannel 9 at 5 p.m. on Monday, you may have noticed something slightly different about the newscast. You probably didn't need to be much of a TV news junkie, either, to do a double-take.

The station has changed it's longtime music package.

"The Local Station," has gone from Gari Media's "News Station" to "Aerial" by Stephen Arnold music. Why such a big deal? This is the first significant change of music the station has seen in 20 years. WSYR had been using variations of the "News Station" package since Ron Lombard (now YNN news director) purchased the cut in 1993 while serving as news director of what was then WIXT-TV.
