MIW Names First ‘Women in Country Radio’ Mentee.

Sarah Weaver, Program Director and Morning Show Co-Host of WKML “Today’s Country” 95.7 in Fayetteville, NC, has been named the first Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Country Radio Mentee, according to a news release.

Non-profit MIW, which states as its key initiative the advancement of female leadership in radio broadcasting, says the mentorship program will last a year and will expose Weaver and those who follow her to “the best minds in the business through personalized conversations, connections, and opportunities aimed at growing their leadership and management positions in country radio.”

Weaver, who began her radio career at KMVN in Anchorage, AK in 2013 before joining Beasley Media Group-owned WKML (95.7) as midday personality in 2016, will also be afforded the chance to attend the 2025 Country Radio Seminar (CRS) in Nashville, a marquee event for country radio. The seminar is staged by the non-profit Country Radio Broadcasters.

Weaver was named co-host of the Big Wake Up morning show in August of 2017 before rising to Music Director and Assistant Program Director. She was named PD in January of last year.

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

Added CRS Executive Director RJ Curtis: “It has been a pleasure to collaborate with [MIW Board President] 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.”
