THE MENTORING AND INSPIRING WOMEN IN RADIO (MIW) GROUP has named ANGIE MARTINEZ as the 2016 MIW AIRBLAZER. MARTINEZ is heard on afternoons at iHEARTMEDIA Urban outlets WWPR (POWER 105.1)/NEW YORK and WMIB (103.5 THE BEAT)/MIAMI and will receive her award prior to ‘THE WOMEN’S FORUM’ session at the MORNING SHOW BOOT CAMP, AUGUST 11-12, 2016 in ATLANTA.
MARTINEZ, author, actress, television host, recording artist, brand spokesperson and activist for youth and health awareness, released her memoir, "My Voice" last month where she details her story, including her climb to becoming a multimedia icon in the world of entertainment, and shares never-before-told anecdotes from her years in media.
MSBC Founder DON ANTHONY said, "Having gone from an intern to the reigning ‘Queen of NEW YORK radio,' ANGIE's story serves as a true inspiration to others in search of their dreams. I can't imagine a more perfect pick by last year's recipient, ELLEN K, in choosing ANGIE for this honor, a perfect segue from trailblazer to airblazer."
MIW RADIO GROUP spokesperson KAY OLIN adds, “Our intention with the AIRBLAZER AWARD is to showcase ladies behind the microphone who lead the way as local and syndicated on-air personalities. Women honored by the MIWs have not only achieved their own success, but further understand the importance of sharing their experiences with those coming up the ranks behind them. ANGIE embodies this spirit and we heartily congratulate her on adding another professional accomplishment, the 2016 MIW AIRBLAZER AWARD, to her collection of accolades."
