The Broadcasters Foundation of America (BFOA) will present its third in a series of networking Media Mixers on Thursday, June 13 from 5:30-7:30 pm at the New York City studios of iHeartMedia. The event will be hosted by iHeartRadio air personality Gandhi, a member of the syndicated Elvis Duran and The Morning Show, with a live performance from local singer/songwriter Jackie Romeo, currently a contestant on The Voice. BFOA's Media Mixers serve a dual purpose: to bring together up-and-coming broadcast professionals with their peers and executives; and to increase awareness of the Broadcasters Foundation charitable mission.

"Our first two Media Mixers were a huge success for young professionals who mingled with executives, and we're looking forward to another great event," said Broadcasters Foundation President Tim McCarthy. "We have an obligation to show young people in radio and television that broadcasting offers successful and fulfilling career opportunities. We also need to help them understand what the Broadcasters Foundation does, why it's important, and how they can help."

The June Media Mixer is presented in part by industry sponsors Hearst Television and NY State Broadcasters Association. The two-hour event is free, but space is limited, and advance registration is required. To register, visit broadcastersfoundation.org. Previous Media Mixers were held in New York City and Chicago.

The Broadcasters Foundation has distributed more than $15 million dollars in aid over the past 20 years. This year, the Foundation will award approximately $1.8 million.
