Nanette Rainone, Early Creator of Feminist Radio Shows, Dies at 73

Nanette Rainone, who as a reporter and programmer at the New York radio station WBAI in the late 1960s and early ’70s created some of the first programs dedicated to feminism and women’s issues, died on May 23, 2016,  at her home in Manhattan. She was 73. The cause was complications of breast cancer, her son, Bruno Blumenfeld, said. Ms. Rainone (pronounced ray-KNOWN) was a volunteer at the station in 1969 when she developed the idea for “Womankind,” a feminist news and information radio show that included interviews.
