Lady Bird Johnson dead at 94


She was best known as First Lady of the United States and a campaigner for conservation, but Lady Bird Johnson and her husband, the late President Lyndon B. Johnson, were also broadcast owners. Beginning with an AM station in Austin, whose call letters were changed to KLBJ, they built a group of radio and TV stations even as LBJ advanced his political career. The last stations were sold in 2003. Lady Bird Johnson died yesterday at her home in Austin at age 94.
