Kathryne H. "Kitty" Broady, a gospel radio show host who was active in community affairs, died at her home last Thursday in a fire that police say was deliberately set. She was 76 and lived in the 3700 block of Liberty Heights Ave.
Services for Mrs. Broady were being held today at Union Baptist Church, 1219 Druid Hill Ave.
For the past three years, she had an afternoon show on WBGR-AM. Earlier in her more than 25 years in the Baltimore area, she broadcast gospel shows on WEBB and WCBM in Baltimore and WANN in Annapolis.
Listeners and station officials described her as down-to-earth, pleasant and witty.
She also took up causes on the air, once sponsoring a benefit to feed the hungry in the late 1960s, a time when she also helped to expose problems at Baltimore City Jail through letters sent by prisoners in her listening audience. She continued her interest by doing volunteer work with the prisoners.
