Melissa Carter: The truth about women in media

Melissa Carter

Last week was a pinnacle in my radio career. Vikki Locke invited me to speak at a “Women in Media” charity luncheon, and I was introduced by Mara Davis. I have listened to these two amazing women and looked up to them for years. 

The opportunity to speak to my mentors along with a room full of women was an honor.  What I said may not have been that encouraging, but it was the truth.

My speech was titled, “What Was Said to Me When the Microphone Was Off.” That topic could have kept me there all day.  But I limited my speech to three of the most shocking statements that had been made to me during my career.
