Ann Mahoney Bryce, Pioneer of Oklahoma TV, Dies at 92 - Tulsa World

Monday, March 27, 2017

Sooner football fan throughout her life, with the notable exception of the Barry Switzer years. Ann was proud of her Oklahoma roots. Her grandfather, Michael Raphael Conway, took part in the Cherokee Strip land run of 1893. He homesteaded a parcel of land near Billings and made an initial home there by digging a cave in the ground. He later built a proper house. One of the bedrooms in the new house had a trap door that opened to the original cave. Michael raised wheat and cattle and went on to become a prominent citizen in Noble County. He was elected county treasurer and helped found a bank in Perry. Ann was a career woman before being a career woman was cool. Shortly after graduating from OU, she was hired by Oklahoma Natural Gas. The company sponsored "Lookin' at Cookin'" one of the first shows to air regularly on KOTV after the station launched in October 1949. (KOTV was the first TV station in Tulsa and the second in Oklahoma. WFOR in Oklahoma City was the first.) Ann hosted "Lookin' at Cookin'" when it debuted on KOTV on December 8, 1949. "Lookin' at Cookin'" would continue to air on KOTV for the next 32 years and was one of the longest-running shows in the history of the station. ("Lewis Meyer's Bookshelf" which aired for 42 years, holds the longevity record at KOTV.) In addition to her duties on KOTV, Ann traveled the state on behalf of ONG doing cooking demonstrations. She also taught what ONG called "kitcheneering classes" that were "designed to help the new homemaker, brides, brides-to-be, career girls, and business women." In 1950, she went on a blind date with Walter Pierce Bryce, a native of Tulsa, who had served as Marine aviator in World War II. Walter liked to tell of how during th
