Wilda Wilson Church
Wilda Wilson Church (left) was a pioneer radio drama producer. Born in Ohio, she was an English
teacher and dramatic instructor at the Cora L. Williams Institute, a private high school
for girls in Berkeley,
when she was recruited by KRE to produce radio drama in 1922. She honed her talents on
KRE and then on KGO in the East Bay, before joining NBC as a producer of dramatic programs
for the Pacific Coast Network. She was said to have produced more radio dramatic programs than
any individual on the West Coast up to that time.
