MIW Mentoring Details Announced
The Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) Group announced details for the 2013 Mildred Carter Mentoring Program. This is the 12th year of the program, which matches up-and-coming women in radio with female professionals who are leaders in all aspects of radio. Three candidates from radio will be selected for the program. For instructions on how to apply, visit www.RadioMIW.com. Your deadline to submit is December 21.
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.
