Today, Canadian programmer, host and storyteller, Sarah Burke announced the launch of one of Canada’s influential new podcasts – Women In Media. The first episode featuring radio host and television personality Josie Dye is available now with another set to launch on International Women’s Day March 8th. The Women In Media podcast examines the powerhouse of women in media; from the music and entertainment industry to broadcast, sports and everything in between.
Covering a variety of topics with inspiring female leaders including; Josie Dye (Canadian radio and TV personality), Tracy Martin (President, Canadian Country Music Association Awards), Liz Trinnear (LA correspondent for eTalk on CTV), Rida Naser (Program Director and Host, SiriusXM US) and many more, host Sarah Burke will explore the collective challenges women face in a male-dominated industry through thoughtful female-led discussion, influential guests and personal stories covering topics like bullying, motherhood, diversity and inclusivity.
“Based on our physiology alone, women face different challenges than men do in their professional lives,” shares Burke. “I’ve always been particularly intrigued by how women handle the spotlight in the media. We have to fail, recover and rebuild the same way that everyone else does, but with a bigger audience; more eyes are watching. The media (understandably) loves to promote certain topics along with a given day or month with a hashtag or annual celebration, and I’m certainly guilty of participating. While I’m launching during Women’s History Month and excited to share a new episode on International Women’s Day, I’m here to remind women to brag about their accomplishments all year long! It’s no secret that we often don’t feel like we should or can, but we MUST!”
On each episode of the Women In Media podcast, guests reveal and discuss the obstacles and trials they have faced as they built their careers; the important lessons they have learned along the way and share helpful advice and insight for fellow women, trailblazers, entrepreneurs and more.
Releasing new episodes every other Monday (beginning March 8th), the Women In Media podcast is accessible on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and everywhere you listen.
