The Country Radio Broadcasters are now accepting applications for the Lisa McKay Women in Radio Scholarship program. The scholarship program awards three aspiring female radio programmers the opportunity to attend their first-ever Country Radio Seminar conference.
“We’re proud to continue this unique scholarship program for 2023 in an effort to encourage young female radio talent by providing three recipients the opportunity to experience their first-ever CRS, where education, networking, and music discovery can advance their career paths,” said RJ Curtis, Executive Director. ” Additionally, we’re excited to partner with DMR/Interactive, an organization with a history of supporting this kind of initiative.”
