0

More than 100 women have been honored by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) by being selected as winners of its 45th annual Gracie Awards.


The list of honorees includes individuals comprising some of the most talented women in television, radio and digital media.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a compilation video of select honorees was produced and can be viewed here:

The Gracies recognize “exemplary programming created by, for and about women in radio, television, and interactive media.” Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets. “This year’s honorees represent the substance and ethos of women’s storytelling and journalism at its best,” AWRT notes. “Their work during this global state of affairs – full of innovation, courage and endurance – serves as inspiration today for the journalists of tomorrow.”

“Our leadership is proud to honor the best of the best who embody the spirit and intention of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s Gracie Awards,” says Becky Brooks, Executive Director for The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation. “We want to thank those on the front lines telling the important stories still impacting our world. It is our distinguished honor to recognize the reporters, hosts, producers and media executives who are working to ensure the public is informed. We know everyone in media has been impacted in some way, and we continue to salute this outstanding list of honorees for their award-winning passion, energy and perseverance.”

Along with Ziploc Brand, the Diamond Sponsor of the 2020 Gracies Gala, this year’s sponsors include Crown Media, CBS, CNN, Katz Media Group, NCTA – The Internet and Television Association, Beasley Media Group and Cox Media Group.
