MIW Deadline Extended
The Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio Group has extended the deadline for applications for the 2013 Mildred Carter Mentoring Program to February 14. This is the 12th year of the mentoring program, which matches up-and-coming women in the radio industry with female professionals who are leaders in all aspects of radio. Three candidates from radio will be selected for the 2013 program. Go HERE for more details.
The program is named in memory of Mildred Carter, who, along with her husband, Andrew "Skip" Carter, founded the first African-American-owned radio station in the U.S. in 1950, when they turned on KPRS Kansas City, Missouri. Mrs. Carter ran the Carter Broadcast Group for many years after the death of Skip Carter, before turning over control of the company to her grandson, Michael Carter in 1987.
