Museum of Television & Radio lauds women

What do Katie Couric, Lucille Ball and Julia Child have in common?

The work of each of these women is being honored by the The Paley Center for Media, formerly The Museum of Television and Radio as part of a display about the most influential women creators in television and radio. A reception in their honor was to be held Thursday at the museum's New York chapter.

Lucille Ball is part of the Museum of Television & Radio's display as one of the most influential women.

Writers, directors, producers, journalists, sportscasters and executives were among the honorees. Visitors to the museums in New York and Los Angeles will be able to see examples of their work in "She Made It: Women Creating Television and Radio."

Among the others whose work is being spotlighted are journalists Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters, talk-show hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey, pioneering executives Geraldine Laybourne (Oxygen) and Judy McGrath (MTV), and producers Marcy Carsey and Diane English.
