This paper uses an auto-ethnographic, first-person perspective on gender bias experienced in the commercial radio industry from 1989-1999. This ethnography is then used to pose pertinent questions regarding how to address the issue of possible gender bias in the mass media industry within a curricular framework at higher education institutions. How do we best prepare our female students, in particular, to prosper in an industry that is known for gender inequity in pay and advancement opportunities?
