Gracie Awards Gala Pushed To Sept. 22
The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) has made the decision to postpone the 45th Annual Gracie Awards Gala, scheduled for May 19, due to recommendations from public health officials surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.
The Gracies Gala will now take place on Sept. 22 at the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills, Calif.
“We are grateful to the women and men who are keeping the public connected and informed to stay healthy and safe during the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic,” said Becky Brooks, AWM executive director. “In this unprecedented time, we must come together as a community in media and as human beings. We are looking forward to the day when we can once again convene to honor the brave reporters, creators and the extraordinary programming in all mediums of news and entertainment.”
The Gracie Awards Gala honors outstanding individual achievement and programming by, for and about women in national television, radio and interactive media. AWMF will contact this year’s entrants within the next few weeks, followed by a public announcement of the winners.
