As part of the just-ended NYC Television Week events, Multichannel News has named the 2020 Wonder Women, who will be celebrated on March 26 during NYC TV Week Spring.
For more than 20 years, MCN has been saluting select female leaders in media at a gala luncheon in New York City, and in a special issue of the magazine. The 2020 luncheon will be at the New York Marriott Marquis, an event co-hosted by the New York chapter of Women in Cable Telecommunications.
More than 700 people are expected to attend to hear the honorees share their inspiring stories and network with their peers in the multichannel TV industry.
“Now in its 22nd year, the Multichannel News Wonder Women event is a celebration of standout female leaders in media,” said Randi Schatz, VP/Market Leader of Media Entertainment at Broadcasting & Cable and Multichannel News. “We are thrilled to be honoring women in the industry who exemplify leadership, determination, and innovation across many aspects of the business. They are an inspiration to us all.”
