AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO AND TELEVISION names AWRT executive AUDREY TANZER as its 2008 AWRT Achievement Award winner. TANZER joined AWRT in 1985 and has served in several official roles with the group, including programming chair, conference chair, Northeast area director and vice president of resource development. She has also served on AWRT’s national Nominating Committee and as a judge for the Foundation of AWRT’s GRACIE AWARDS, as well as coordinating its student volunteers. She is the namesake for the NEW YORK CITY Chapter's AUDREY TANZER Scholarship for promising students in the electronic media.
"AUDREY TANZER is a true asset to both AWRT and women in the industry," said AWRT 2007–2008 National Chair and RAB EVP of Marketing MARY BENNETT. "She has been a tireless advocate for AWRT’s members and has helped support the organization in too many ways to list over a span of more than 20 years, and we are thrilled to honor her."
"I am proud to receive this honor at AWRT’s Leadership Summit, an event I helped to conceive many years ago," said TANZER. "AWRT is an organization that has been near and dear to my heart for so many years; it’s special to be recognized by a group that has meant so much to me."
The award will be presented at the AWRT’s Annual Leadership Summit & Business Conference in WASHINGTON on MARCH 14th.
