“We are thrilled to have three outstanding individuals who will continue the spirit of Mrs. Carter’s legacy through the 2011 Mentoring Program,” said Lindsay Cerajewski, MIW Chair and Local Sales Manager of WUSN-FM & WCFS- FM Chicago.
The mentoring program was established in 2002 in an effort to match mentees with female professionals who are leaders in all aspects of the radio industry. The MIW’s have assisted mentees with learning more about the ins and outs of the industry, networking up and down the corporate ladder and providing guidance for the Mentee to grow her career in whatever direction she chooses.
The annual mentoring program is dedicated and named after Mildred Carter, who bought KPRS Kansas City with her husband in 1950 and ran Carter Broadcast Group for many years after his death.
