re your broadcast on February 15 of a review by  Betsy Kepes of Murder in the Adirondacks: An American Tragedy Revisited by Craig Brandon

the announcer on your program who introduced Ms. Kepes referred to the novel based on the case (An American Tragedy) that was written by Ted Dreiser

Please note: Theodore Dreiser was sometimes referred to by intimates as Teddy

But in public and in the media, he was NEVER referred to as Ted

it was Theodore Dreiser, never Ted, including in his boyhood
