Hi Donna: I found her obit from the "New York Times."
She was certainly responsible for a lot of "firsts"

Feisty as well

According to a 1951 issue of "Look Magazine, she was part owner.

"Bernice Judis is the general manage and part owner of WNEW, radio station."

It's from a dealer in old magazines.
