‘One of our Own’ Jill Masek, Lincoln Director of Sales is one of four women across the country named to the Mentoring and Inspiring Women (MIW) Group Mildred Carter Mentoring Program’s Class of 2020. The MIW Group is a volunteer organization consisting of top-level female radio professionals, from across the country, who are dedicated to using their influence and resources to help other women in radio broadcasting develop management and leadership skills. MIW is equally committed to advocating for the advancement of women to senior positions within the radio industry.
“This is an amazing opportunity for Jill to receive mentorship from some of the top women in our industry as she continues to grow her leadership skills. To submit for consideration shows she has great passion and enthusiasm for what she does every day. To be one of four chosen from across the country is a really big deal and we are so happy for her to be given this opportunity to learn more from the best,” commented Ami Graham, NRG Media/Broadcast House General Manager.
The MIW Group Mildred Carter 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 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.
