Talkers Names KFI's Bertolucci Woman of The Year
Michael Harrison's Talkers magazine has named KFI/KTLK, Los Angeles PD Robin Bertolucci the winner of the 2012 Judy Jarvis Memorial Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Talk Radio Industry by a Woman. Bertolucci is also a regular member of the Radio Ink Most Influential Women in radio list and was again this year. That issue was just released yesterday.
About the award, Bertolucci told Radio Ink last night, "I love this business and I'm flattered, honored and delighted." Talkers says, "the award is named in honor of the late Judy Jarvis – a pioneer in the independent talk syndication movement of the 1990s – who was stricken with lung cancer and died in the prime of her life and career in 2000."
Other winners of the award include: Laurie Cantillo, Grace Blazer, Adriane Gaines, Randi Rhodes, Laura Ingraham, Lisa Evers, Gloria Allred, Lynn Distler, Kim Komando and Ellen Ratner. The award was first presented posthumously to Judy Jarvis. Last year’s recipient was Stephanie Miller who will participate in the presentation.
