Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) announces Sarah Weaver, Program Director and morning co-host of WKML in Fayetteville, NC as the inaugural MIW in Country Radio Mentee. The mentorship program is a year-long experience that exposes the mentee to the best minds in the business through personalized conversations, connections and opportunities aimed at growing their leadership and management positions in country radio. In addition, the program affords the mentee the opportunity to attend the 2025 Country Radio Seminar in Nashville.

Weaver began her radio career in 2013 at KMVN in Anchorage, AK before joining Beasley Media Group in Fayetteville, NC in 2016 as the midday personality on WKML-FM. She was named co-host of the Big Wake Up morning show in August, 2017 and assumed the Music Director and Assistant Program Director duties shortly thereafter. In January of 2023, Weaver was promoted to the role of Program Director.

"It is an honor to have this opportunity and accessibility to some of the most brilliant female minds in our business," remarked Weaver. "I look forward to a year of growth, learning, and networking. Thank you to MIW and the entire CRS team."

"It has been a pleasure to collaborate with Ruth Presslaff and her team at MIW to identify Sarah Weaver as our first Country radio mentee. I cannot adequately praise how thorough this process has been in selecting the most deserving candidate. Sarah is a rising star, who will shine even brighter as a result of this program," commented Executive Director RJ Curtis.

MIW Board President Ruth Presslaff said, "Congratulations to Sarah, and thank you to RJ Curtis, John Shomby, and the CRB Board for the opportunity to focus a mentorship specifically on country radio. Special thanks to Becky Brenner for her work on this program."
