Lee-Arceneaux Named Inaugural MIW, NABLF Engineering Mentee
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, September 4, 2023|
Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) and the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) have announced Lucretia Lee-Arceneaux as the first 2023 MIW NABLF Launch program recipient. Launch is a new partnership between MIW and the NABLF dedicated to supporting and guiding women in radio who are relatively new to the industry. The first of its kind, this program will target the development and curation of talent, this year focused on the engineering side of radio.
Lee-Arceneaux followed her dream from age 7 to work in broadcasting. She pursued this drive with her education at SAE Atlanta as an Audio Engineer, and then on to Colorado Media School and the Colorado Broadcasters Association CBA Engineering Academy. Entering the broadcast industry, she continued to excel with roles at internet-based and broadcast radio companies, leading her to her current role as a Broadcast IT Engineer for iHeartMedia.
Lee-Arceneaux aspires to become a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) with a vision of overseeing radio and TV buildout projects, as well as driving OTT TV developments. Lucretia is an active member in organizations such as SBE (2014), AES (2014), Grammys (2014), SMPTE (2016), Emmys (2019) and IEEE/WIE/BTS (2022).
MIW Board President Ruth Presslaff commented, "MIW and NAB Leadership Foundation have been cooking on this idea for a while. We are so glad it's now a reality and equally so to have Lucretia as our first mentee."
"Mentoring is the bridge that connects the wisdom of experienced professionals with the aspirations of those who follow, paving the way for a brighter future. It's an honor to have been selected as the first mentee in the Launch Engineering Mentorship Program. Not only is it a unique learning opportunity, it's a chance to support and build relationships with other women leaders in the broadcast industry, and that's exciting," said Lee-Arceneaux.
"We are thrilled to partner with Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio, Inc., to unveil the Launch program, a milestone initiative aimed at fostering the next generation of female leadership in radio broadcasting," said NABLF President Michelle Duke. "I'm so proud of Lucretia Lee-Arceneaux and her achievements. As a graduate of the foundation's Technology Apprenticeship Program, she exemplifies the ingenuity, determination and technical prowess that not only enriches our industry but sets a high standard for those who follow."
