April 29, 2008 (McLean, VA) – American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) will honor the contributions and achievements of women in electronic media at the 33rd Annual Gracie Awards Gala at the New York Marriott Marquis on Wednesday, May 28, 2008. Each year, nearly 1,000 people gather to honor the best and the brightest in entertainment and media.
The Gracie Awards recognize exemplary programming created for, by, and about women as well as individual achievements in radio, television, cable and web-based media.
AWRT President Maria Brennan said, “The Gracies statue is so much more than an award. It represents how far women have come in all facets of entertainment and media. It’s that one time per year the industry collectively honors their achievements and celebrates their contributions.”
