Nick Clooney in The Encyclopedia of Northern KY
Each Monday The Cincinnati Post prints excerpts from the forthcoming Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky. Today's entry was Nick Clooney's, written by his wife, Nina Clooney.
Due to the necessity for their mother to find work in Cincinnati, Nick and his sisters Rosemary Clooney and Betty stayed in Maysville with their Grandmother Guilfoyle most of the time.
The children listened to radio broadcasts on Cincinnati station WLW, as well as other radio stations, and fell in love with the wonderful radio voices that spoke and sang to them. In their teens, they followed their dreams: Rosemary and Betty left Maysville to pursue successful singing careers and Nick took a job at age 16 at Maysville radio station WFTM, which launched a long and distinguished career in broadcasting.
