The Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio Group has extended the application window through Jan. 18 for its Mildred Carter Mentoring Program.
A total of four candidates from the radio broadcasting industry will be selected for the program, which pairs women who work in the radio industry with female professionals recognized as leaders in radio broadcasting and media. Of those, at least one spot will be designated for a programming candidate and one spot designated for a digital candidate. More info can be found here.
“This provides a wonderful opportunity for mentees to gain valuable insight, knowledge and access to some of the most influential women in radio,” says Lindsay Cerajewski, chair of the 2017 MIW Radio Group’s Mentoring Committee and director, Partnership Marketing and Branded Content for Emmis Digital in Chicago.
The MIW mentoring program is named for Mildred Carter, who, along with husband Skip, founded the first African American-owned radio station in the U.S. in 1950. Carter ran the Carter Broadcast Group for many years after the death of her husband, before turning over control of the company to her grandson in 1987.
