By: Women In Film & Television Atlanta
Carol Blackmon is a highly accomplished media professional. She has hosted several local television shows and currently host her own show on Atlanta's Majic 105.5 / 97.5. We recently caught up with her for a quick interview and got a glimpse into her world. She was very candid when it came to opening up about what it takes to be respected and to have staying power as a woman in the entertainment industry: "In an industry that can be so superficial, it is important to be yourself and come from a real sincere place. People know when you are not being sincere, when you really don't care, and it is just a job…"
Women In Film & Television Atlanta has been Georgia's foremost entertainment organization is support of women since 1974; Blackmon, who has 30+ years in the entertainment industry, has been a WIFTA member for just under a year but has supported it for much longer than that. "I had been saying for some time I was going to join WIFTA, telling one of my friends, BJ Arnett every year was "the" year. I am excited that I have finally become part of this incredible organization and anxious to see what the horizon holds."
