The MENTORING AND INSPIRING WOMEN IN RADIO (MIW) group has released their PD Gender Analysis Summary for 2006. It shows that women have made essentially no progress in this job category and in fact, can’t be found as PDs in many radio station or groups markets across the country.
"It stands to reason that if we as an industry more accurately reflect the communities to which we are licensed, we are likely to become more relevant and to thrive," commented JOAN E. GERBERDING, newly appointed President of LOCALFOCUS in NEW YORK CITY and longtime spokesperson for the MIW group. "The PD pool is just not reflective of the marketplace."
