The news staff of The McDuffie Progress has grown.
Brian Bowden, an experienced multimedia journalist, joined the news department on Nov. 4. He will lend his experience to sports and education coverage in McDuffie and Warren counties, and he will provide feature stories on a variety of topics from across the region.
Bowden, a resident of Evans, is a 2013 graduate of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va. and a veteran of the United States Navy. In college, he served as a sports reporter for the university’s athletic department.
He served from 2001 through 2007 in the United States Navy as a sonar technician and anti-terrorism training officer assistant. He continuously prepared shipboard personnel for foreign port readiness and he closely worked with police and military in all the countries he visited.
According to Progress Editor Wayne Parham, Bowden is a wonderful addition to the newsroom staff and The Progress looks forward to him joining Jim Wallace in covering school sports as well as recreational sports.
“I am excited about becoming a part of The McDuffie Progress’ news team and working within the Thomson community and beyond,” Bowden said.
