TAMPA, FL — Cox Media Group (CMG) Tampa is proud to announce that Sam Blowers, on-air personality for WSUN (97X), has won a Gracies Award. This award recognizes exemplary programming created by women, for women, and about women in all facets of media and entertainment.

“I know that I am just one of so many successful and accomplished women in the CMG family who have overcome obstacles, fought personal battles, and powered through it all to reach goals in our careers we’d never thought possible,” says Blowers. “I am beyond grateful and humbled to represent these women at The Gracies Awards and hope to inspire others to see that no goal is too big, and no dream is out of reach.”

Established in 1975, The Gracies – named for broadcasting pioneer Gracie Allen – supports the work of the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF), creating educational programs and providing scholarships that benefit the public and media industry.
