The MENTORING AND INSPIRING WOMEN IN RADIO (MIW) GROUP has partnered with MARKETRON to establish the “MIW Rising Star Award,” naming the award, given to the top scoring scholarship recipient at the RAB-MIW-BMI "Rising Through The Ranks" program, in honor and memory of the late MARKETRON VP of International Sales RENÉE ROTH.
This year's recipient will be BEASLEY/TAMPA BAY GSM ERIKA BEASLEY, who will receive her award during MIWs “Denim & Diamonds” dinner at the 2016 RADIO SHOW in NASHVILLE SEPTEMBER 21st.
“RENÉE ROTH was a passionate advocate for educating, encouraging and mentoring women in Radio,” said MARKETRON Chief Revenue Officer DEB ESAYIAN. “She guided many careers and helped countless women advance in their roles, believing that the impossible was always possible. With this scholarship, MARKETRON celebrates RENÉE’s love of radio, her brilliant and remarkable career in the industry and her dedication to building a better tomorrow through conscientious efforts put forth today.”
“Rising Through the Ranks is the epitome of MIW’s mission and commitment to nurture the next generation of female radio professionals,” said MIW Spokesperson and OLIN & ASSOCIATES Principal KAY OLIN. “MARKETRON’s generous support enables us to showcase this unique and vibrant two-day event in a new light by acknowledging Radio’s stellar rising stars, such as ERIKA BEASLEY. Our MIW Rising Star Award honors RENÉE’s spirit and commends her strong belief in the power and importance of women in leadership roles. We look forward to formally recognizing our first MIW Rising Star at the upcoming RADIO SHOW. Congratulations ERIKA, well deserved and well done.”
“I’m so honored and humbled to receive the inaugural MIW Rising Star Award and only hope I can be a role model and inspiration to other women in the radio industry,” said BEASLEY. “Work hard every single day, focus on your goals, and most importantly, believe in yourself and you too can make a difference. Radio is my heritage, my passion, and in my blood!”
