Ellen Voie, WIT’s President/CEO, will begin the monthly segments this Monday, November 18 at 7:00 am central. “We are excited about the opportunity to obtain even more exposure to drivers who listen to the Nemo show and may not be aware of what Women In Trucking Association does for them,” Voie said. “Our mission includes addressing obstacles that might keep our members, both women and men, from the success they should achieve as professionals in this industry.”
Nemo remembers some of the challenges women faced on the road, “It wasn’t too long ago that a female driver had to have a male stand guard at the shower door, because truck stops simply didn’t have facilities for women,” he recalled. “There have been many positive changes in trucking, and women are becoming more a part of those changes. We at Dave Nemo Entertainment are proud to be a part of Women in Trucking; it’s an all-inclusive group dedicated to moving trucking into an all-inclusive future,” Nemo added.
Dave Nemo has broadcast to the professional drivers of North America continuously for over forty years. The Dave Nemo Show’s mission is to keep drivers and stakeholders informed of current and pending issues that affect the trucking industry, ranging from transportation legislation to health and wellness. Dave Nemo Entertainment is proud to be a trusted source of both entertainment and information to more than 1.3 million daily listeners.
