The Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio Group announces the opening of the application window for its 2018 Mildred Carter MIW Group Mentoring Program, which pairs women who work in the radio industry with female broadcasting leaders.
A total of four candidates from the radio industry will be selected for the 2018 program. At least one spot will be designated for a programming candidate and one designated for a digital candidate. Sales and marketing professionals are also encouraged to apply.
The deadline to apply is Jan. 12, 2018.
Beasley Media Group has committed to act as the lead sponsor of the 2018 initiative, and CEO Caroline Beasley also joins the roster of MIW mentoring volunteers.
“This unique initiative 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 2018 MIW Group’s mentoring committee and general sales manager at WSCR(AM)/Chicago Cubs Radio Network.
The MIW Group Mentoring Program is named for Mildred Carter, who, along with her husband, founded the first African American-owned radio station in the U.S. in 1950. Mrs. 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.
