Los Angeles, CA, March 21, 2016 – In a milestone year of record-breaking entries, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) celebrates women by recognizing their outstanding achievements across all sectors in media. This year’s 41st annual Gracie Awards, in support of the AWMF’s educational programs, charitable activities, public service and scholarship campaigns that benefit women in media, will take place on Tuesday, May 24th at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The spectacular evening event will recognize such esteemed honorees as Tina Fey, Angela Bassett, Cynthia Nixon, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kathie Lee Gifford, along with some of the most talented women behind the camera. Then in June, local market, public and student award winners will be recognized at the Gracies Awards Luncheon on June 21 at Cipriani in New York, New York.

This year, AWMF is taking a fresh and exciting new approach to the Gracie Awards show programming by naming Vicangelo Bulluck as Executive Producer. Bulluck’s extensive portfolio includes opening the Hollywood Bureau office of the national NAACP and was its first executive director. He also served as the Managing Director of Outreach and Special Events for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. At the Academy, Bulluck managed the production of the Governors Awards, the Sci-Tech Awards, the Student Academy Awards and the first-ever Oscars Concert. Bulluck was recently announced as an Executive Producer for the 2016 Democratic National Convention.

Kristen Welch, Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Chair, and SVP, Global Content Operations at Discovery Communications said in making the announcement, “The AWMF, through the Gracie Awards, is honored to recognize the collective, powerful voices of women from across the media landscape. Their influence and inspiration on and off the camera, encourages our future generations to build on the foundation and opportunities created by the great women before them.”

The evening will spotlight prolific women in the industry who continue to lay the groundwork, break down barriers and lead by example in creating equal opportunity for future generations. This year’s national radio, TV and interactive media Gracie Awards honorees are (please see attached for a full list of local, public and student winners):
