DeDe McGuire Named Winner of the 2021 MIW (Mentoring and Inspiring Women) in Radio Airblazer Award

Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio (MIW) announces DeDe McGuire, host of the syndicated "DeDe in the Morning" show, as the recipient of the 2021 MIW Airblazer Award. The award stems from an alliance formed in 2015 between MIW (formerly known as the MIW Group) and Morning Show Bootcamp (MSBC).

The recipient is selected, as is tradition, by the prior year's winner and is recognized for her dedication and contributions to the broadcast industry and to the communities she serves. The 2021 Airblazer Award will be presented to DeDe McGuire on August 12, 2021, during MSBC Chicago.

"It's an honor and I'm completely blown away," said McGuire. A trailblazer and industry leader, McGuire has been entertaining radio audiences for years. After ten successful years co-hosting the nationally syndicated "The Doug Banks Show," she went on to host her own show "DeDe in the Morning." Syndicated through Compass Media Networks via Service Broadcasting, she can be heard in over 55 markets and counting.

MIW Board President Ruth Presslaff added, "What a joy to celebrate DeDe and her many accomplishments. Her non-stop work in radio is impressive enough, but it's her support of so many organizations, and her commitment to mentoring that makes her so special, and so deserving of this award."

2020 MIW Airblazer Angela Yee, host of the syndicated "The Breakfast Club" commented, "DeDe is a woman I admire because she excels as a rarity in this industry: a black woman leading a nationally syndicated morning show. I love that she is not only an inspiration, with her tremendous talent and work ethic, but she is also effortlessly beautiful inside and out."

In addition to Angela, previous MIW Airblazers include Kellie Rasberry (2019), Mercedes Martinez (2018), Roula Christie (2017), Angie Martinez (2016) and Ellen K (2015).

McGuire is a philanthropist, community activist, mentor and volunteer. She continues to give back to the community through countless non-profit organizations including Minnie's Food Pantry, North Texas Food Bank, Dress for Success Dallas, and Women Called Moses Domestic Violence Outreach Program.

Additionally, McGuire supports deserving women through her "Beauty and Brains" DeDe McGuire Scholarship and through her DeDe McGuire Foundations 'DeDe's Do-Over' Scholarship, which assists women whose early educational goals were interrupted due to unforeseen circumstances with a second chance to complete their college or vocational degree.
