+ Front Page Drama drew its long running collection of interesting stories from the pages of The American Weekly magazine.
Running from the 1930s through the 1950s, Front Page Drama was a popular radio program sponsored by The American Weekly Magazine. It is also known as The American Weekly Program, as the radio stories were adapted from stories in the magazine by the same name. Emmy Award winning writer and producer Paul W. Keyes got his start on Hearst Radio directing Front Page Drama.
