Five St. Louis women in media will be honored with a jazz show and wine-tasting on Nov. 19 by the St. Louis chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women.

Honorees are: Carol Daniel, co-host of Great Day St. Louis on KMOV-TV (channel 4) and news anchor at KMOX-AM (1120); Tammie Holland, co-host of “The Tony Scott Show” on KMJM-FM (104.9); Kelley Hoskins, assignment editor, web producer and writer, KTVI-TV (Channel 2); Vickie Newton, news anchor and reporter for KMOV-TV; and April Simpson, news anchor and reporter for KTVI-TV.

The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Lumiere Place Hotel Atrium in downtown St. Louis. Entertainment will be provided by Lamar Harris.

Daffney Moore, prez of the local chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, had kind words for the women who will be recognized by the group.

“We welcome the opportunity to honor such strong women in media who inspire us, exhibit positive images of African American Women and are committed to improving the quality of life for people in the St. Louis Region,” Moore said.

Tickets for the event are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Proceeds will benefit the programs and initiatives of the national coalition.
