WAMU 88.5 General Manager Caryn G. Mathes Named One of Washington Business Journal’s “Women Who Mean Business”

WAMU 88.5 General Manager Caryn G. Mathes was recently named by Washington Business Journal as one of its 2013 Women Who Mean Business. Mathes, an experienced broadcaster and general manager, was one of 25 women in the Washington, D.C., metro area selected for the award.

“I’m humbled to be among this stellar group of women,” Mathes said. “It is a privilege to serve our community by providing an exceptional public media experience and to be recognized in this manner.”

Washington Business Journal developed the Women Who Mean Business awards program to honor the region's most influential businesswomen. In its tenth year, the award is presented to women from a variety of professions and industries who have made a difference in their communities and are leaving a mark on Washington, D.C.

Caryn G. Mathes joined WAMU 88.5 as its general manager in 2005. Under her leadership, WAMU 88.5 has strengthened its position as a national and international provider of news and culture, expanded its major giving program and created a healthy revenue base. Recently, the organization moved into its new media center at 4401 Connecticut Avenue in northwest Washington, D.C.

Mathes has also been recognized as "One to Watch" on Radio Ink's annual "Most Influential African-Americans in Radio" list and has received the Women of Distinction Award from the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.
