Little Orphan Annie

The Little Orphan Annie radio program, which began in 1931, was the first newspaper comic strip to make the leap to nationwide radio, and the first radio program aimed at children. Each episode was broadcast twice, once from Chicago for the Eastern half of the United States featuring Shirley Bell as Annie, and also from San Francisco for the West Coast radio stations featuring Floy Margaret Hughes as Annnie.
