CATEGORY: Society & Culture
EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN is the nation's leader in programming by and for women. The show airs Sunday mornings at 7:30. EW has won 44 prestigious awards including the 2017 Gracie Allen Award from the Alliance for Women in Media, the Gabriel Award from the Catholic Academy of Broadcasters, and the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association "Sound Bite" Award. EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN has put nearly 600 women in the spotlight. Some of them make headlines, others make things happen quietly...but they are all inspiring. If you'd like to nominate someone to be on EXCEPTIONAL WOMEN, email a brief summary of their story to Sue Tabb. We receive many submissions, and there's no guarantee that yours will be chosen, but we carefully review all of them and appreciate your support.
