AWRT Changes Its Name

It is now the Alliance for Women in Media

To keep up with the rapidly evolving broadcast industry, the group formerly known as American Women in Radio and Television and its foundation have chosen a new name, Alliance for Women in Media.

According to a release the new name “reflects the changes in the industry and marketplace, resonates with the makeup of the organization’s membership and respects the 59-year legacy of the organization.”

Sylvia Strobel, 2010 chair of the national board, said “Although a difficult decision to make, our membership agreed that the organization’s name must reflect the industry in which it serves as a leader for the advancement of all women.”

The organization was founded in 1951.
