The Alliance for Women in Media is joining with TVNewsCheck in honoring Andrea Berry, SVP of media services at Fox Network Engineering and Operations, for her technological contributions. The presentation of the annual Women in Technology Leadership Award will take place at the NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 17.
The Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) has endorsed, and will once again, co-present TVNewsCheck’s Women in Technology Leadership Award.
The award, which this year will honor Andrea Berry, senior vice president of media services at Fox Network Engineering and Operations, turns a spotlight on women who have contributed significantly toward advancing their industry technologically.
“Andrea Berry is one of the highest ranking women in media industry technology, yet she has devoted a great deal of effort to helping younger engineers advance their careers,” said Valerie Blackburn, president of AWM and market controller for CBS Radio in Los Angeles. “She is a leader in every sense of the word.”
TVNewsCheck and AWM will honor Berry at a ceremony and reception at 6 p.m. on April 17 in Room N115 of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the National Association of Broadcasters’ annual convention and exhibition.
The Women in Technology Leadership Award benefits the NAB Educational Foundation’s Technology Apprenticeship Program, which places young engineers who are women or people of color in broadcast industry internships.
The Alliance for Women in Media is a nonprofit, professional organization of nearly 10,000 women and men who work in the media and allied fields.
