Bettie Englebrecht

 A pioneer in Indiana broadcasting, the husband-and-wife team of Bettie and John A. Engelbrecht founded WIKY radio in 1947. The company eventually became South Central Broadcasting, where Bettie served as its public service director. Upon John’s death in 1974, Bettie and her son John D. guided and supported further development of the company.
