Award-winning news anchor Benita Zahn, class of 1976, will moderate the panel set to include various new media professionals.
Fellow alumnus Michael Cassidy is founder and CEO of Undertone Networks, a new media advertising agency. He joins National Public Radio social media critic Andy Carvin, 3D HDTV producer Vicki Betihavas and Appleâ€™s Dr. Jon Landis.

Longtime television executive and 1977 Oswego graduate Louis A. Borrelli Jr. founded the summit in 2005 with a leadership gift. Three years ago, he and NBC â€œTodayâ€ show co-host and weatherman Al Roker, class of 1976, provided funding to name it in honor of Oâ€™Donnell, longtime chair of Oswegoâ€™s communication studies department, who passed away in 2007.
