WHIO continues to celebrate women’s History Month with Ro Nita Hawes-Saunders.
Founder, and former owner of WROU 92.1, U-92, and 96.9 WRNB, Hawes-Saunders went on to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.
Hawes-Saunders is committed to various boards and committees.
She has earned many awards and accolades but says influential women don’t ‘give of themselves’ to get awards.
“They do it because it’s a passion. Because the work needs to be done; don’t do it for the reward,” says Hawes-Saunders.
Between running a radio station, overseeing the business of an internationally acclaimed dance troupe, or even organizing a yearly, day-long concert known as ‘fly city,’ Ro Nita Hawes-Saunders will always be making moves.
