    "News in the Digital Age" was the theme for SWU's first media panel discussion Jan. 26 at the university's Central campus. Panelists were, from left: (front) Kelly Boan, news director for Fox Carolina; Steve Bruss, S.C. regional news director for the Greenville News and Anderson Independent; Mandy Gaither, WYFF-TV news reporter; Emily Rash, public relations for Marleylilly; Kirk Varner, News director for WSPA-TV; (back) Sharon Johnson (moderator), communications director for Pickens County and former WYFF-TV reporter; and Nisha Patel, client services manager at Crawford Strategy.
