"This is a wonderful opportunity for mentees to gain valuable insight, knowledge and access to some of the most influential women in radio," said Lindsay Cerajewski, chair of the 2015 MIW Radio Group's Mentoring Committee and general sales manager at CBS Radio’s WUSN-FM in Chicago. “We look forward to another outstanding program in 2015."
A total of four candidates from the radio broadcasting industry - within the sales, marketing, programming and digital disciplines - will be selected for the 2015 program.

The MIW mentoring program is named in the memory of Mildred Carter, who, along with her husband, Andrew "Skip" Carter, founded the first African American owned radio station in the U.S. in 1950, when they turned on KPRS Kansas City, Missouri. Mrs. Carter ran the Carter Broadcast Group for many years after the death of Skip Carter, before turning over control of the company to her grandson, Michael Carter in 1987.
