Front Page Follies
Front Page Follies is a night of music and skits poking fun at news and local newsmakers. It is the signature event and main fundraiser for the East Tennessee Pro chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists to fund scholarships for communications students at the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State. The annual roast features a cast of journalists and community members, along with cameo appearances.
Each year, an individual with notable achievements in the field of journalism is honored, and the 2014 honoree is Robin Wilhoit, news anchor for Knoxville’s WBIR-TV, Channel 10.
All proceeds fund scholarships for journalism students at the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State Community College.
