About theSOP

For over 6 years, theSOP has been a cutting edge news organization with the goal to provide novice writers, student journalists, amateur broadcasters and unpublished authors the opportunity to showcase their talents while practicing ethical journalism and broadcasting in a professional environment that mirrors all major media outlets.

theSOP.org not only helps students become better writers, it also helps to build the leaders of our future. The SOP was one of the first sites to publish and produce online radio content under the same guidelines as traditional media outlets.

Thesop.org provides a platform in which students are able to create a story, have it edited by their colleagues as well as proven media professionals to be published in the real world. One of the SOP's leading experts, Djelloul Marbrook, seasoned journalist, author and winner of the 2007 Stan and Wick Poetry Prize presented by Kent State University is always available to mentor and offer his expert opinion. In addition our organization offers multiple online writing, broadcasting, and publishing opportunities and scholarships.

"Judyth Piazza is one of those imaginative people of boundless energy who change the world one day at a time. She has given young journalists around the world immeasurable help as they launch their careers in a period of great change in the entire communications industry.

I have spent my entire life as a reporter, editor and news executive, and I think I speak authoritatively when I say the profession needs people like her to design and execute the new operational and business models needed in the 21st Century.

Once Judyth interviews you or The Student Operated Press writes about you, the contacts start pouring in, and in a short time, you`re actually entertaining the notion that you`re famous. The reason is that Judyth and her staff understands how to use the Internet. They understand its potential, and they restlessly seek new ways to use it," says Marbrook.
