The MENTORING AND INSPIRING WOMEN IN RADIO (MIW) Group has formed an alliance with TALENTMASTER's "Morning Show Boot Camp" (MSBC) to establish the MIW Airblazer Award, which is an honor bestowed annually to a deserving on-air personality in radio broadcasting. The recipient of the inaugural MIW Airblazer Award is iHEARTMEDIA's ELLEN K, one of the most recognizable voices in radio and co-host of "On Air with RYAN SEACREST" on KIIS/LOS ANGELES.
ELLEN K will receive the award at the "Women’s Forum" session during at the 27th annual Morning Show Boot Camp scheduled for AUGUST 6- 7 in CHICAGO.
"The inaugural MIW Airblazer Award,” says MIW Radio Group Spokesperson KAY OLIN, “gives us another avenue with which to build awareness and recognition of all the immensely talented women leading the way as local and syndicated on air personalities.” She continues, "Along with our mission of mentoring, we are most proud of the MIW Gender Study we produce annually to track the growth and progress of women in radio management. One area where we continue to see women most challenged in on-air and programming, so the MIW Airblazer Award is especially significant."
