As alarming as that number might be, it’s far from a comprehensive—just off the top of my head there are three people missing from that list that I met earlier in the year before their tragic deaths.

Werk’n It

As the year winds down and everyone starts rushing towards the shiny, nebulous possibilities of 2017, I find myself looking back at 2016 and the moments that made me proud to be a woman in public media… as well as the moments that left me thinking, “Huh, we still have a ways to go, don’t we?”

Generations of Gracie

It is call for entries time again for the esteemed Gracie Awards and for me this reminds me of the extraordinary work the Alliance for Women in Media does to honor and embolden women in our fast-paced industry. It also reminds me of a truly special afternoon I shared several months ago with deeply inspiring women from all levels in the business… and all ages. I have been blessed in my decades (yes, decades!) in the broadcasting field to attend many awards ceremonies, but being a part of the Gracies as a presenter and multiple recipient, has been one of the more powerful and profoundly moving times in my career.

Thigh-deep in orange mud, I looked to my right and saw Ja San Gawlu, my fixer for the week, in the same situation- both of us with our bodies being devoured by mercury-contaminated remnants of a gold mine that had been shut down by the government earlier that week.

It was just one of many moments that week that I felt forever grateful for her and every other fixer I have worked with.
