The ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION has named RURAL MEDIA GROUP Founder/Pres. PATRICK GOTTSCH as its new Honorary Trustee. GOTTSCH leads the RFD-TV/RURAL TV networks with programming designed to both cultivate and nourish the country lifestyle.
"Women have been integral both as viewers and employees in RFD-TV and RURAL TV’s growth around the world," GOTTSCH said. "Many of our clients and customers are led by capable and talented women. Since our earliest days women have had a profound impact on our success and it continues today. My daughters RAQUEL and GATSBY played huge roles in RURAL MEDIA GROUP’s early success by contributing their professional talents. I am honored to align myself with the ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION and help to serve its members with relevant guidance and advocacy."
"The ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION’s Honorary Trustees make it possible for us to utilize media to create positive change," AWMF Board of Directors Chair KAY OLIN said. "We appreciate RURAL MEDIA GROUP’s commitment to engaging, recognizing and promoting women in media. I look forward to working with PATRICK this year."
