Stephanie Diamond was a local actress who was also the wife of Harold V. Cohen. Among her many credits, she occasionally contributed voices to the Cordic & Company show. Back in the '50s and early '60s, the Pittsburgh Playhouse was the center for a lot of local theater and she did quite a bit of work there.

Cohen was the movie/drama critic for the Post-Gazette for 40 years. He also hosted a Sunday afternoon movie show, first on KDKA-TV and then on WTAE. He died suddenly in 1969, and Rege Cordic took over the hosting chores in 1970 after his Sunday morning WTAE radio show ended. The Sunday movie show lasted at least into the early 1980s. It was a forerunner of the AMC format of presenting background information segments during the showing of the movie.
