Holloway to speak at women’s luncheon

Qcity radio personality Ramona Holloway will be the guest speaker at a women’s networking luncheon sponsored by Morton’s steakhouse.

Holloway, one half of the nationally syndicated “Matt & Ramona Show,” will discuss women in the workforce, the qualities women must possess to be successful and tips for tapping into one’s individual calling.

The March 24 luncheon will kick off a series of networking lunches geared toward supporting and celebrating women, said Krista Manns, sales and marketing manager at the uptown steakhouse.

Matt & Ramona win comedy award

Matt Harris and Ramona Holloway, co-hosts of the nationally syndicated Matt & Ramona Show, recently won a Gracie Allan Award for Outstanding Comedy.

The annual award is given by the Alliance for Women in Media (formerly American Women in Radio & Television).

Holloway accepted the award at the 35th Annual Gracie Awards Gala held on Tuesday, May 25, in Beverly Hills. Harris also attended.

The award marked the second straight year the duo has been honored for outstanding comedy. Their show is broadcast from WLNK (107.9 the LINK) in Charlotte.

Their winning entry, “Ramona Meets Jimmy Carter,” centered on Holloway’s less-than-memorable encounter with her idol, the former President.

Party With A Purpose

On Friday, Feb. 28, BLT Steak in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel will host a “Party With a Purpose” to benefit A Child’s Place, a local charity that works to erase the impact on homelessness on Charlotte-area children and their education.

After a lifetime of dieting, in mid-January, Holloway bucked the strong advice of some of her family members and underwent gastric bypass surgery. But if you think the procedure was all about vanity, she said, you’d be wrong.
