The first African American woman to own a radio station and operate a television station in the United States has died.

Dr. Dorothy Brunson, died Sunday morning at the age of 82 years old.

She was the first African American woman to own a radio station with WEBB in Baltimore, Md., in 1979.

Senator Catherine Pugh of Maryland released a statement on her death.

“Dr. Dorothy Brunson was my mentor, my mother, my sister, and my best friend. She believed in me unconditionally and was my loudest cheerleader. Words cannot express how deeply I took her advice and counsel and her wisdom always astounded me. In addition to having her own trailblazing career, she was responsible for helping so many others become successful and achieve their dreams. Dorothy Brunson was a woman before her time and I will miss her from the depths of my heart.”
