New York, NY – July 5, 2023 – The Broadcasters Foundation of America is launching a series of networking Media Mixers, with the first one scheduled for Thursday, July 20, 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the New York City studios of iHeart Media. The event will be hosted by nationally syndicated radio air personality Angela Yee, who will be joined by other radio and TV on-air talent. The purpose of the Media Mixers is twofold: to give up-and-coming professionals in broadcasting an opportunity to mix and mingle not only with their peers, but with talent, managers, and executives; and to increase their awareness of the Broadcasters Foundation charitable mission.
“We’re very excited about this new initiative,” said Tim McCarthy, President of the Broadcasters Foundation. “It’s imperative that we reach the next generation of broadcast industry leaders with our message of help and hope, while giving them an opportunity to network with higher level professionals who they may not otherwise have an opportunity to meet.”
The July Media Mixer is presented in part by industry sponsors Hearst, iHeart Radio, Katz Media, and the NY State Broadcasters Association. The two-hour event is free, but space is limited, and advance registration is required. Registration is available on the Broadcasters Foundation website at www.broadcastersfoundation.org/mediamixers.
