The Mel Greenberg Media Award, named after Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Legend Mel Greenberg, is presented annually by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) to "a member of the media who has best displayed a commitment to women’s basketball and to advancing the role of the media in the women’s game".[1]

Selection process[edit]

The inaugural award was given to Mel Greenberg in 1991 by the WBCA. Thereafter, future winners have been selected by the past recipients. Candidates for consideration must "have had a positive impact on the growth and national or regional exposure of the sport, been involved in the media exposure of women’s basketball for a minimum of five years and should be a media ambassador for the women’s game."[1]

Presentation[edit]

The award is presented annually at the WBCA Award luncheon, held during the annual WBCA Convention, which is held each year in conjunction with the NCAA Women's Final Four.
