Serving as Mentoring Committee Chair is Entercom VP/National Agency Partnerships Lindsay Adams (née Cerajewski). She is a former MIW Mentee.
“This program truly does propel the careers of women forward in our industry,” says Adams. “It is rewarding to watch our mentees grow professionally throughout the year.”
The MIW Group 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 launched KPRS-AM in Kansas City. 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.
