Kelly Ford Honored With Alliance For Women In Media’s Gracie Award

The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation is honoring several Cumulus personalities with four 2017 Gracie Awards. The Gracies are given to women to celebrate and recognize outstanding achievements and exemplary programming created by, for and about women in all facets of media and entertainment.

Among this year’s honorees is Kelly Ford, co-host of the nationally syndicated Country radio morning show “Ty, Kelly & Chuck,” who earned a Gracie for Radio Co-Host-National. The “Ty, Kelly & Chuck” show airs from Cumulus Media’s NASH Campus in Nashville to more than 100 markets across the U.S. and is nationally syndicated by Westwood One.

Also receiving two Gracies this year is Cumulus Media’s Cheree Carter, Co-Host of “Zazza Mornings With Cheree,” who is being recognized with nods for Radio Host/Personality-National and Radio Imaging-National, and Rita Cosby, Host of WABC Radio New York’s “Election Central with Rita Cosby,” who earned a Gracie this year (her fifth total) for Interview Feature-Local for her New York Primary Day feature, which contained interviews with the Presidential candidates.

The 42nd annual Gracie Awards support AWMF’s educational programs, charitable activities, and public service and scholarship initiatives that benefit the public and women in media. Carter and Ford will accept their awards along with other national honorees America Ferrera, Mariska Hargitay, Drew Barrymore, Lynn Whitfield, Riley Keough and Samantha Bee on June 6 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.
