Dorothy Edwards Brunson (March 13, 1939 – July 31, 2011) was a notable African-American broadcaster.
After leaving Inner City Broadcasting, Brunson was the first African-American female to own a radio station in 1979, WEBB in Baltimore, Maryland. She also later purchased radio stations in Atlanta and Wilmington, North Carolina.
Brunson would sell off her radio stations in 1990 to provide funding to establish WGTW-TV in Burlington, New Jersey, a suburb of Philadelphia, becoming the first African-American woman to establish a television station. She later sold WGTW to Trinity Broadcasting Network.
