The Rochester Women's Network on Thursday named Marietta Avery, general manager of WDKX-FM, as the recipient of its 2013 "W" Award.
Avery joined WDKX in 1974 and was named the station's general manager in 2010.
She created the "Women for Women" motivational series and is a frequent speaker at conferences, executive training and special events. She also contributes to the RocNext blog on RochesterNext.com.
"I consider myself a servant leader," Avery said in accepting the award at a reception at the Woodcliff Hotel & Spa in Fairport. "Even in the position of general manager" it's still about serving."
Avery's community service includes the New York State Broadcasters Association, Action for a Better Community Foundation and Safe Child Foundation. She also is a trustee at Mount Vernon Baptist Church.
The "W" Award, which is in its 27th year, is presented annually to a woman who works on behalf of other women.
