Connections: Women in Journalism; Teddy Roosevelt Documentary

We start the hour with a look at how women in journalism have seen their opportunities and contributions change for the better. But in some ways, not enough has changed. Joining us is Leah Stacy (also editor-in-chief of 585), creator of a new documentary-sytle performance for the upcoming Fringe Festival and acting professor ShawndaUrie.

Then we talk to Matt Ryan, managing editor of "New York Now", and filmmaker behind the new documentary about Teddy Roosevelt's installation as president called "Nine Long Days". It’s a companion doc to the Ken Burns production, "The Roosevelts", and it airs this Saturday at 6 p.m. on WXXI-TV. The documentary focuses on the assassination of McKinley and the rise of Roosevelt.

Evan Dawson is the host of "Connections with Evan Dawson." He joined WXXI in January 2014 after working at 13WHAM-TV, where he served as morning news anchor. He was hired as a reporter for 13WHAM-TV in 2003 before being promoted to anchor in 2007.
