The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created by, for and about women in radio, television, cable and interactive media. Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets.
“Throughout this important year, we have enjoyed some of the most compelling content in our history,” AWMF Chair Heather Cohen said in a release. “We were informed, enlightened and entertained by women in media across all platforms.”
The Gracie Awards Gala will take place on Sept. 27 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles. In lieu of the Gracie Awards Luncheon, which will no longer take place in person on June 26 in New York City, local and student award winners will be recognized virtually. An alternate in-person celebration is currently being evaluated.
“As we celebrate AWM’s 70th anniversary, we are thrilled to honor this incredible group of women who have demonstrated their commitment to sharing emotionally charged, timely and compelling content,” Becky Brooks, President, Alliance for Women in Media Foundation remarked. “We look forward to reconvening in person to recognize these incredible achievements and brave story-telling,”
