Leigh Savage, a Furman University alumna and managing editor at Community Journals, wrote a recap of Judy Woodruff’s visit to Furman on Oct. 18 for Greenville Journal. Woodruff, a former NBC White House correspondent and anchor for CNN and “PBS NewsHour,” was a guest of FurmanWIN (Women’s Impact Network). The Emmy-winning broadcast journalist spoke about free speech and raised concerns over how divided the nation has become over political and social issues. In 2022, Woodruff stepped away from her anchor role with “PBS NewsHour” to explore that divide further in a national reporting project known as “America at a Crossroads.”
