Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor inspiring women.  Women who are leaders, teachers, mothers, daughters, sisters, mentors, and friends. Women who inspire, lead, and forge the way for other women. It is not just about one day or month it is about what they do, day in and day out.

FOX44 wants to recognize the great contributions that these women have made to our local communities and families. Throughout Women’s History Month, FOX44 will highlight four local women, nominated by her peers, friends, and community. The top nominee will be named FOX44’s “Remarkable Woman” and will receive a $1,000 contribution on their behalf to a non-profit of their choice! That winner is then considered for Nexstar’s Nationwide Woman of the Year.  The Nexstar Charitable Foundation make a $10,000 contribution on behalf of the “Nexstar Woman of the Year” to the non-profit organization of her choice.

Last year’s winners from each local market were flown to Los Angeles where they enjoyed a poolside reception at the Lowes Hollywood Hotel catered by Wolfgang Puck.  On day two, the Remarkable Women had a tour of Hollywood, and a special “Remarkable Women” presentation at the historic TCL Chinese Theater.  On day three, dinner and award presentations were hosted by television personality Leeza Gibbons and featuring appearances and remarks from Oscar-winning actress and talk show host Jennifer Hudson and author and philanthropist, Cookie Johnson.

This year’s national winner will be named in April 2024.
