* Elisabeth Logan, GSM Radio One, Cleveland, OH
* Stacey Kauffman, LSM Hubbard, Chicago, IL
* Noelia Santelli, NSM Salem, New York City, NY
* Angela Hampton, On-Air Cromwell Radio Group, Effingham, IL
This is the twelfth year of the mentoring program, launched in 2002, which matches women in the radio industry with female professionals who are leaders in all aspects of radio. To date, the Program has successfully worked with a total of 27 mentees.
"We had an outstanding and enormous number of women apply this year, which made the decision to narrow to only 4 very difficult" said Lindsay Cerajewski, spokesperson for the MIW Radio Group Mildred Carter Mentoring and General Sales Manager of CBS Radio's WUSN-FM in Chicago, Illinois. "This program would not be possible without the MIWs’ commitment and dedication and should serve as an inspiration to everyone in the radio industry."
The 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.
