The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) has decided to postpone the 45th Annual Gracie Awards Gala, scheduled for May 19, due to recommendations from public health officials surrounding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The group says the safety of its honorees, staff and partners involved in the annual gala remains the top priority. The Gracies Gala will now take place on September 22, 2020 at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills.

"We are grateful to the women and men who are keeping the public connected and informed to stay healthy and safe during the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic," said AWM Executive Director Becky Brooks. "In this unprecedented time, we must come together as a community in media and as human beings. We are looking forward to the day when we can once again convene to honor the brave reporters, creators and the extraordinary programming in all mediums of news and entertainment."

The Gracie Awards Gala honors outstanding individual achievement and programming by, for and about women in national television, radio and interactive media. AWMF will contact this year's entrants within the next few weeks, followed by a public announcement of the winners.
