The 2012 Most Influential Women

The 2012 Most Influential Women In Radio
See a PDF of the MIW layout in Radio Ink Magazine. Click the red link above

Radio Ink Most Influential Women in Radio issue is now in lucky year number 13. Since 2011, our list has gotten a little bigger, which is a good thing. Every year more women are succeeding at high levels in radio, and those whove been successful in the past continue their success and increase their influence.

Not only is the 2012 MIW list  a massive compilation of successful women, its loaded with secrets. The women on the list reveal for you how they made it to the top. The events in their careers the moved them to the next level. The mistakes they made, so you can avoid them. And the reasons they are successful today in a highly competitive, not to mention shrinking, radio workforce.

There were many different roads taken, but most explain how important a mentor was in helping them learn, advance, and win in this business. The Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group, which has its roots in this list, is all about mentoring, and passing knowledge along. The all-volunteer organization sponsors events focused on mentoring women who want successful careers in broadcasting. We encourage you to reach out to these broadcasters, seek their advice, pick their brains, and learn from them. They are the best of the best in radio.
