WPRO’s Tara Granahan Wins A Gracie

WPRO’s Tara Granahan has been awarded a Gracie Award from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation.

The Gracies recognize exemplary programming created by, for and about women in radio, television, cable and interactive media.  Honorees are selected in national, local and student markets, including both commercial and non-commercial outlets. 

Named after the late Gracie Allen, the Gracie Awards acknowledge outstanding team leadership and individual achievement. The Gracies focus on women who are making positive change and who further the discussion of what a fulfilling career in media looks like.

Rhode Island’s Tara Granahan, of WPRO’s The Tara Granahan Show, won this year alongside other honorees such as Debra Messing, Leah Remini, Robin Roberts, Savannah Guthrie, and Cumulus’ Jillian Barbarie, and others.

“I’ve always loved to tell a story, debate the issues and hear people laugh,” said Tara. “To be rewarded for that is such a bonus!  I’m so thankful to Cumulus and WPRO listeners, my family and friends; to be included in this group of women? …Amazing!”

The Alliance for Women in Media was formed in 1951, originally as American Women in Radio and Television, the women’s division of the National Association of Broadcasters.

The award ceremony was held June 26th in New York City.
