Karole White will be inducted into the Michigan Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
White is president & CEO of the Michigan Association of Broadcasters. In issuing the announcement, MAB said White began her career 25 years ago when MAB “was just a fledgling, part-time organization.

Before MAB, White was executive vice president director for the Michigan Floral Association, the executive director of the MFA Health Insurance Trust, the managing director of MFA Federal Credit Union and president, executive director MAB Floral Service Inc. She has been in association management in the Greater Lansing area for three decades. She served in executive positions with the Michigan Funeral Directors Association, United States Cheerleaders Association and Muscular Dystrophy Association.
White got her broadcasting background through advertising as marketing director for Forbes Cohen Properties in Lansing and as telethon manager for MDA.
