PGCC Professor of Mass Communications, Lou Holder, hosted a speaker series titled “ A Salute To Excellence: Women in Media”. The series brought together women with extensive backgrounds in the DC-Metro broadcast journalism community to share their experiences as women within the news-media sphere. The first panel comprised a masterclass of female television veterans from the DMV. The star-studded panel included Laura Evans and Sue Palka from FOX5 joined by Maureen Bunyan and Andrea Roane from CBS channel 9, and Irene Johnson from NBC4.

The speakers, being women in a fiercely
competitive and ever-evolving industry,
highlighted the pressures of broadcast journalism and emphasized the significance of female role models in carving out a path for young women in this historically cutthroat field.
