Broadcast Tech & Engineering News – Bell Media Network’s Borika Vucinic recognized with international media tech honour

Borika Vucinic

Borika Vucinic, Vice-President of Bell Media Network, has been jointly named Woman of the Year by Rise, the award-winning advocacy group for gender diversity in the media technology sector. Vucinic shares the award with Inga Ruehl of Sky Sports. The Woman of the Year award, sponsored by Zixi, is presented to an extraordinary and inspirational woman who has made a significant contribution within her field. This year, the judges were unable to choose just one winner from a shortlist of women from around the world, so they decided to honour both Vucinic and Ruehl. Vucinic oversees engineering support and operations for the Bell Media Network broadcast sites in Montréal and Toronto, and project engineering and network support for television and radio stations across Canada. With 25 years of experience with the Bell team, she’s earned a reputation as an innovator and team builder. She also lends her passion for broadcasting to industry organizations, currently serving on the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) Board of Directors as a Vice-President.

Since that time, it’s brought multiple innovations to market, including data APIs, a fully automated trading platform for radio and most recently, a real-time TV performance management platform.
