The MIW heritage Mentoring Program was established in 2002 and named in memory of Mildred Carter. Mrs. Carter, along with her husband, Andrew “Skip” Carter, founded the first African American-owned radio station west of the Mississippi River in 1950, when they turned on KPRS Kansas City, Missouri. Mrs. Carter ran the Carter Broadcast Group for many years after the death of Skip Carter, before turning over control of the company to her grandson, Michael Carter in 1987.
