Premier Women’s History Month event brings together Dallas/Fort Worth’s top women anchors
The Women’s Museum announces today that Karen Borta, CBS 11 NEWS Anchor, Gloria Campos, WFAA-TVNEWS Anchor/Reporter, and Clarice Tinsley, FOX 4 Anchor/Reporter, will be the honored guest speakers for the 7th annual Stories from the Top… of the Hour program, on Friday, March 26, 2010. The luncheon, moderated by Regina Montoya, will engage these leading women in a candid conversation focusing on their personal and professional journeys in one of the top news markets in the nation.
According to Media Report to Women, during the 2007-2008 primetime television season, on screen females accounted for 43% of all characters. Although this is statistically close to half, it represents a historical high. Stories from the Top offers a rare chance to see these trailblazing women share the trials, challenges and triumphs that have led to their top level positions in broadcast journalism.
“Stories from the Top is always exciting,” said Wanda Brice, CEO of The Women’s Museum. “This year, the rare treat of hearing from the three women who have been chronicling our DFW experiences makes it a unique program. These three women will share with us the real ‘behind the scene’ stories of their personal journeys to success.”
Stories from the Top is the premier event of Women’s History Month hosted by The Women’s Museum: An Institute for the Future and sponsored by Wells Fargo, Grant Thornton LLP, CISCO and others. The purpose of this program is to recognize and applaud the achievements and contributions of our nation’s most outstanding women while raising funds for the mission of The Women’s Museum.
The Women’s Museum, celebrating a decade of empowering women in association with the Smithsonian Institution, is the nation’s only comprehensive women’s history museum that chronicles the lives of American women through interactive exhibits. The Women’s Museum is supported, in part, by the City of Dallas, Office of Cultural Affairs. Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 5:00 p.m. (closed Mondays).
