“In local TV news I’m encouraged by the fact that RTNDA surveys show about one-third of all news directors are women. Women far outnumber men in journalism schools, so it’s just a matter of time before sheer numbers prevail.”
Terry Anzur, anchor, WPEC-TV (CBS), West Palm Beach, Fla.
“I believe that it is widely understood and becoming increasingly accepted that a flexible workplace is essential to retaining talented working moms. The risk of losing resources that took years to develop is a foolish one for companies to take.”
