Mary Quass will receive the ninthannual MIW Radio Group Frances Preston Trailblazer Award on Sept.
The MIW Radio Group Trailblazer Award is presented each year to a woman who, through her leadership and success in the media industry, creates opportunities for other women in radio.
It was renamed the "Frances Preston Trailblazer Award" in 2012 in honor of Frances Preston, longtime BMI President/CEO and one of the original MIW Radio Group members.
"We had an outstanding and enormous variety of women apply this year, which made the decision to narrow to only four very difficult," said Lindsay Cerajewski, spokesperson for the MIW
Radio Group Mildred Carter MentoringProgram and General Sales Manager of CBS Radio's WUSN-FM in Chicago, Illinois.
