Prominent Journalists Join Sigma Delta Chi Foundation Board

Kyle Elyse Niederpruem, president of the Society, noted that the appointees were selected "based on their reputations in the world of journalism."

Appointed to one-year terms as SPJ representatives were:

Tony Mauro, Supreme Court correspondent for American Lawyer Media

Hoag Levins, vice president and executive director of APBnews.com, a national news service focused on crime, justice and safety
