Naples, Florida (May 7, 2019): The Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) Group is pleased to announce the names of four radio professionals selected to participate as mentees in the 2019 MIW Group Mildred Carter Mentoring Program.
Now in its 18th year, the MIW Group’s signature mentoring program matches up-and-coming women in the radio industry with female professionals recognized as leaders in all aspects of radio broadcasting. Beasley Media Group, LLC is, for the second year in a row, serving as the lead sponsor of this year’s program.

A total of four candidates from the radio broadcasting industry - within the sales, marketing, programming and digital disciplines - are selected annually for the MIW Group Mentoring Program. The robust 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.
