Ben Brady, 94, a writer and producer in the early days of television who also worked in radio, died March 20 at his home in Los Angeles.

Brady, a New York City native, wrote daytime radio serials to support himself while attending law school at St. Lawrence University. While practicing law, he wrote scripts for such radio shows as "The Thin Man," "Mr. & Mrs. North" and "Inner Sanctum."

After World War II, Brady moved to Hollywood to produce and direct for radio, including programs starring Dinah Shore and Steve Allen. He also wrote comedy for Fred Allen, Groucho Marx, and Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. For television, he produced "The Outer Limits," "Rawhide," "Perry Mason" and "Have Gun, Will Travel."

In the late 1950s, he was a founder of the Television Producers Guild of America, which later merged with the Producers Guild of America.
