The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show wins Gracie Award for Outstanding Talk Show!
Benztown Radio Networks today announced that The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show has won the Gracie Award for Outstanding Talk Show - Entertainment/Information category. Presented each year by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, the Gracies honor programming that is created by women, for women and about women, and recognizes individuals who have made valuable contributions to the industry. The 38th Annual Gracie Awards will be presented on May 21, 2013, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
The Melissa Etheridge Radio Show is a nationally syndicated five-hour daily program that features Melissa Etheridge, the talented and beloved two-time Grammy-winning rock star and Oscar winner, as she connects with audiences across the U.S. about life, family, and music. Listeners engage with Melissa on-air and online in show segments including "Ask M.E. Anything" and "The Music That Moves You." Melissa's radio listeners also hear fun, behind-the-scene stories and firsthand accounts from Melissa about people she knows that listeners care about -- including Bruce Springsteen, Steve Jobs, Bono, Stevie Wonder, Bill Clinton, and countless others. The show is produced and syndicated by Benztown Radio Networks.
"I have won Grammys and an Oscar, but there is something especially meaningful about being recognized with a Gracie. I love radio, and it's important to me to bring the voices of women to our audiences, as they share their respective truths about life, love and family -- and as I share the same with them. It's also a great pleasure to provide a forum where we can connect with each other about the music that moves us. I'm honored that people are responding to the show across the country and I thank the AWM Foundation for this award," said Etheridge.
