DISCUSSION ON MEDIA
In "What's Happening to your News," news critic, editor and publisher Roger Plothow speaks about who and what you can trust in the digital age today.

Utah's own Kate MacLeod is a regional artist whose original violin pieces inspired by local landscapes have received widespread acclaim. Aiming to raise money to take her music a step further, she's hosting a "Landscape and Utah Music Fundraiser" this weekend.

Nathan Florence is both a designer and a surgeon, which you'll discover at "From Pre-Med to Artist," as he talks about his exhibition at Southern Utah University.
