Honored to Spotlight Successful Women of Color in Media
(New York, NY – June 7, 2019) RADIO FACTS, one of the industry’s leading music industry sites and publications, is gearing up for the production on the much-anticipated 4th annual Celebrating Women of Color in Media magazine.
RADIO FACTS will have eight to 10 honorees this year that will include Women of Color in various positions at various companies. This year we will also spotlight industry companies that create opportunities and embrace diversity for Women of Color. We will revisit a couple of previous winners who continue to make incredible strides in the industry.
“I’m so glad that we created this timely and stellar magazine when we did four years ago. We created it because we noticed that there were/are no industry companies that acknowledged the contributions of Women of Color in media specifically. Women of Color are and have always made great strides not only at companies in the industry but as representatives in high ranking positions at several major corporations outside of the industry. As they are often spokespersons for those companies, we will also consider honoring some of these Women of Color as “Women of Color in Media” too.” stated Radio Facts CEO Kevin Ross
Past honorees include spotlights and interviews with Epic Record’s Chairman and CEO, Sylvia Rhone, Atlantic Records EVP of Urban Promotions, Juliette Jones, Radio One founder, Cathy Hughes, and White House Correspondent, April Ryan to name a few.
Which Industry Companies Embrace Diversity?
“This year we will also spotlight a few industry companies that embrace diversity and provide upper management opportunities for People of Color.” Stated Radio Facts CEO Kevin Ross
We are seeking writers and would like to provide opportunities for rising young Women of Color in the industry to be a part of this magazine. Please contact Kevin Ross for more info. Include how you would like to contribute. See an entire previous issue here
