Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Nov 1, 2008




Flint Journal:

1953 was a big year for Flint-based radio station WFDF-AM (910). In the wake of the deadly Beecher tornado in June, the station was feeding news coverage to the national networks. It changed its own network affiliation from ABC to the then-more-prestigious NBC. And in August, while the tornado damage was still evident, WFDF added a new local personality to its daytime schedule. Betty Monas, a native of Flint's sister city of Hamilton, Ontario, began hosting "Listen Ladies," a five-minute, early-afternoon household hints show tailored to homemakers.
