Naples, Florida (March 26, 2018): Beasley Media Group, LLC is proud to announce that Vice President of Digital Operations, Kimberly Sonneborn, has been selected as a mentee for the 2018 MIW Group Mildred Carter Mentoring Program.
Beasley Media Group, LLC is the lead sponsor of this year’s program. “It is an honor to support the MIW Radio Group’s mission of promoting women in the radio industry,” said Caroline Beasley, CEO of Beasley Media Group.
“Each year, we receive an abundance of applications for this coveted program and are encouraged by the caliber of female colleagues working in the radio industry,” said Lindsay Cerajewski, chair of the 2018 MIW Group Mentoring Committee and General Sales Manager of Entercom, Chicago. “We welcome our 2018 Class and can hardly wait to open a few doors, impart some new knowledge and provide guidance to help them reach their personal goals.”
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 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.
