“With these events, we open doors for junior professionals that can lead to long and fulfilling careers in broadcasting,” said Timothy McCarthy, President of the Broadcasters Foundation of America. “We also bring awareness about our charitable mission to tomorrow’s broadcast leaders, helping to ensure that the Foundation will continue to provide aid for those in our business who need it most.”
Last month, the Broadcasters Foundation hosted a Media Mixer, its first event for junior professionals to network with on-air personalities and executives. Several attendees secured job interviews and at least one was offered a position.
