Sara Lomax-Reese, President and CEO of WURD Radio, Pennsylvania’s only African-American owned talk radio station, will be awarded the 2018 PoWeR Award at the 16th Annual Professional Women’s Roundtable Anniversary Event.
Every year, PWR presents the PoWeR Award to a woman, or group of women, in the Philadelphia community who is a trailblazer—someone who deserves to be recognized for her contributions to the community by serving as a role model for emerging women business leaders.
Sara is credited with transforming WURD Radio from a struggling legacy talk radio station to a multi-media, multi-platform communications company providing cutting edge, original programming on air, online and through community events.
Prior to her work with WURD, Sara co-founded HealthQuest: Total Wellness for Body, Mind & Spirit, a trailblazing African-American consumer health magazine that grew from a quarterly publication to a bi-monthly with a national circulation of over 500,000.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, Sara has written for The Miami Herald, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Essence Magazine, American Visions Magazine and Modern Maturity. Most recently Sara completed the Harvard Business School’s Executive Leadership program: The Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports.
Join us for drinks and appetizers to celebrate our 2018 PoWeR Award Winner, Sara Lomax-Reese, and her contributions to women’s empowerment in Philadelphia.
