“The MIW’s Mildred Carter Mentoring Program has been instrumental in providing guidance, leadership, and bridging connections within the industry,” said 2009 mentee and mentoring program chair Lindsay Adams, who serves as Entercom’s VP/National Partnerships. “From personal experience, I can attest It’s an invaluable experience that helps shape and curate career paths and potential.”

Jinny Laderer, founder and CEO of vCreative, adds, “Investing and supporting the personal and professional development of the next generation of female leaders in radio is something I am truly passionate about, and I look forward to watching the 2021 MIW Mildred Carter mentees continue to excel in their careers.”

The MIW Group Mentoring Program is named in 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.
