LOS ANGELES, CA – JANUARY 31, 2011 – After two very successful radio contests spotlighting the contributions of African Americans to urban radio and music, RFFocus is now celebrating the contributions of the many successful Black women in the industry. We now bring you another unique online industry recognition contest “The RFFocus Top 30 Black Women in Media.”
It is time to recognize the outstanding contributions that black women have made to our industry and we are very excited about this contest. We are seeking votes from other industry people who recognize what each one of these incredible women has contributed to our industry and/or outside of the industry as well.
