Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio announces Iliad Media Group, Idaho Senior Sales & Marketing Executive Mary Zukin as "Speak Up's" first mentee. Created in partnership with Media Staffing Network and Laurie Kahn before her passing, Speak Up! is a one-year program designed for one mentee from any department in a small to medium radio market.

The program is designed to encapsulate so much of what Kahn brought to the industry; a mentorship that encourages and empowers women to develop confidence and sharpen communication skills -- to hone the ability to effectively speak up in order to further attain her goals.

Mary Zukin is a Senior Marketing Executive for Iliad Media Group in Boise, ID. Her career started nearly two decades ago in La Grande, OR. After working for her hometown radio stations for two years, Zukin decided to move to Boise and join Iliad Media Group as an Account Executive. Since expanding her career in Boise, she has quickly become one of the top sales executives in the state.

MIW Board President Ruth Presslaff said, "This program will always hold a special place in our hearts as Laurie has left an unforgettable impact on all of us in the industry. We had a number of talented candidates to choose from so it was a tough decision. Mary's energy and vibrant character really illuminated our reasons for curating this program and we're excited to have her as our first inaugural mentee!"

"I am beyond honored and full of pure joy that I was chosen for the Speak Up! mentorship," added Zukin. "I have always wanted to be part of MIW and respect so many of the women on the Board, this is such an unbelievable opportunity. I'm eager to get started."
