DaimlerChrysler and the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters (NABOB) recently named Alexis Snipe Campbell and Bartt Horton as the first fellows to participate in the NABOB DaimlerChrysler Management Fellowship, a two-year initiative designed to foster the development of African-Americans and other minorities who have the talent and the desire to be station owners. “We are pleased and honored to welcome Ms. Snipe-Campbell and Mr. Horton into the first class of NABOB DaimlerChrysler Management Fellows,” said Jason Vines, DaimlerChrysler Vice President-Communications. “We believe this fellowship will provide a challenging and enlightening experience for minorities seeking advancement in the communications industry.”

The NABOB DaimlerChrysler Management Fellowship is offered through DaimlerChrysler’s Leadership in Diversity and Communications Program, or LIDAC, a far-reaching educational program established by the automaker designed to increase the number of minorities in executive leadership positions in the communications industry.

Specifically, DaimlerChrysler has committed $50,000 to sponsor two fellowships through NABOB, intended to put minorities on the track to broadcast media ownership.
