This afternoon, the newsroom leadership at six major outlets in Philadelphia sent this letter to District Attorney Larry Krasner.

The message: we stand for free and fair access for all journalists.

Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office bars KYW Newsradio reporter from press conference

"A press conference open to some members of the media should be open to all," said KYW Newsradio program director Alex Silverman. "To deny access to a reporter who covers the crime and justice beat in our city raises serious questions about how the District Attorney’s Office views a free and fair press."

The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office did not allow KYW Newsradio's Crime and Justice reporter, Kristen Johanson, to enter a news conference open to other media outlets Wednesday afternoon.

Emails Reveal Effort to Disown Stonewall Pride Flag By Trump Administration Official

When a Trump administration official heard a 🏳️‍🌈 flag would fly on the national monument at Stonewall, he and others made sure the U.S. government would be able to say it's NOT theirs. Read the emails obtained by WCBS Newsradio 880:

As they march through America’s national monument to LGBT rights near the end of this weekend’s Pride parade, tens of thousands will pass a flag that, at a glance, is just like countless others. But this rainbow -- the first to fly permanently on public land in New York City -- followed a puzzli...

The Importance of A Family's Support - WCBSAM: On-Demand - Omny.fm

As #PrideMonth2018 gets underway, hear two New York City officials from two different generations, Corey Johnson and Daniel Dromm, on how a family's support can mean the difference between success and despair.

As Pride Month begins, New York City is investing nearly $10 million to help LGBTQ kids with nowhere to go, because in many cases their families have rejected them. Alex Silverman heard from 2 city officials who know firsthand the importance of parental acceptance.

I'm so proud that The Breaking Point, our series from last summer on what's behind New York's transportation crisis, has been honored with a national Headliner Award (First Place, Radio News Series). Thanks to everyone who worked hard on this project, especially Michael Tatar!

https://www.headlinerawards.org/

"It isn't Seattle, where you debate whether to get your high in the morning or the evening, and it’s not San Francisco, where the debate is whether or not I should even go to work that day. This is a work-oriented culture; we need the subway and we need the commuter systems working.”

Watch part one of our series on your maddening commute: "The Breaking Point."

Maybe you saw this already Alex. The Billings Montana station can’t seem to get the chyron correct on our pal Steven Portnoy!
Hey, I found you.
Where are you headed now Alex?
Congratulations!
Alex, you should be very proud of your work on the rainbow flag story! Great reporting - WCBS is lucky to have you!
Congratulations on the National Headliner Award! (I'm going to let it slide that you beat my station's entry.) Great work!
oh WE got snow...in New Paltz.
Happy Birthday, Alex!
even if you are not in the NYC area, there is a series of reports about the state of the train system in NYC and around. It's well thought out, well researched and is quite good. If Alex Silverman doesn't get a nom of some sort ( radio Emmy?)... then it is rigged.#thebreakingpoint
