WARM AND THE MISS AMERICA
Ever since WARM Radio started they were always broadcasting events of national importance. But WARM always seemed to put in a local or statewide angle to bring listeners in. One of the biggest events in the late 1940 was the Miss America pageant. WARM broadcast the contest but heavily promoted the role of a Pennsylvania entrant in its advertising which ran on the same day of the pageant. Again from September 6th, 1947 an ad from the Scranton papers Barbara Jo Walker was the last Miss America to be crowned in her swimsuit, as well as the last contestant to represent just a city, rather than her state. Walker represented Memphis.
According to Wikipedia, the Pennsylvania representative was from Pittsburgh and her name was Lillian Handford who was in the top 15.
