Watch: Nexstar’s 2024 Remarkable Women Special

(NEXSTAR) — It was a night of stars, surprises and countless inspirational stories as Nexstar Media Group, Inc. honored “Remarkable Women” winners from across the nation and named 2024’s “Nexstar Woman of the Year.”

The awards gala was held at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in early April and was the culmination of an amazing trip for more than 100 regional winners. They visited the world-famous TCL Chinese Theatre, got a behind-the-scenes tour of the Warner Bros. Studios lot, and participated in a taping of The Jennifer Hudson Show.

Jerelyn Rodriguez, co-founder of The Knowledge House in the Bronx, was named Nexstar’s 2024 Remarkable Women winner during the ceremony. Rodriguez focuses her work on teaching coding and other digital skills in underserved communities. Ultimately, she wants to help pull people from poverty by giving them the skills they need for high-paying tech jobs.

Every March, Nexstar Media Group, Inc., celebrates Women’s History Month by honoring “Remarkable Women” across the country and recognizing one of them as the “Nexstar Woman of the Year.” Remarkable Women, a nationwide initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and the quality of life, celebrates local women who inspire, lead, and forge the way for other women.

Our more than 200 Nexstar broadcasting stations in 117 markets accept nominations for “Nexstar Woman of the Year.” Based on nominations with universally selected criteria, including community contributions, self-achievement, and family impact, each market selects four local women for consideration as that market’s “Remarkable Woman.” Profiles of the top four nominees in each market air on local newscasts every Tuesday during the month of March and the nominees are featured on the websites of each local television station.

Each market’s “Remarkable Woman” receives a $1,000 contribution on their behalf to a non-profit of their choice and that winner is then considered for “Nexstar 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.
