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.

Gracie’s Award 2015: A Magical Evening With Real Impact

When AWM Board Member Heather Cohen invited me to the Gracies Gala, I thanked her profusely, declaring her my Fairy Godmother. I really did feel like Cinderella – giddy, excited, and desperate for something awesome to wear!
