The Front Page Follies is a night of music and skits poking fun at news — and local newsmakers! The annual roast features a cast of journalists, community members and a sprinkling of cameo appearances who poke fun at newsmakers and events that amused us during the previous year.
Each year, we take this opportunity to honor an individual with notable achievements in the field of journalism. Past honorees range from local newspaper editors and publishers to radio personalities and photographers. We are always open to suggestions for our honorees.
Proceeds from ticket sales and the auctions fund scholarships for journalism students and professional development programs in East Tennessee through the Front Page Foundation.
