Nick Clooney Biography

Nick Clooney has been a broadcaster since he was 16 years old. For most of the intervening years, his focus has been radio and television news. His career has also encompassed hosting talk shows, researching and introducing "golden era" films for American Movie Classics, lecturing about news, American history and movies, writing a newspaper column three days a week and authoring three books, including "Nick: Collected Columns of Nick Clooney” in 1997.

But gathering and delivering news has been Nick Clooney's passion since he was a little boy in Maysville, Kentucky, listening to the unforgettable voices of Ed Murrow, Elmer Davis, William Shirer and others describing the panorama of World War II on the radio. It was in Maysville that Nick began his broadcasting career. His first assignment, appropriately, was reading a newscast.

Over the years, Nick Clooney has been a reporter, anchor, managing editor and news director in Lexington, Kentucky, Cincinnati, Ohio, Salt Lake City, Utah, Buffalo, New York and Los Angeles, California. He has been a speaker, master of ceremonies, moderator or panelist at more than 3,000 events and has delivered the commencement address at high schools, colleges and universities more than 30 times.

When anchoring in Los Angeles, Nick Clooney was selected as one of “the best in the business” of television news by Washington Review of Journalism. He has been inducted into the Cincinnati, Kentucky and Ohio Journalism Halls of Fame, named a Kentucky Distinguished Broadcaster and elected to the Ohio Radio and Television Broadcasters’ Hall of Fame.

Nick Clooney has received an EMMY for commentary and another for historical narration. He was nominated three times for National EMMYs for his work with American Movie Classics. He received an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Northern Kentucky University.

In 2006, Clooney and his son George travelled to Darfur, Sudan and filmed a documentary, A Journey to Darfur. In 2008 it was released on DVD with the proceeds from its sale being donated to the International Rescue Committee to help the people of Darfur.

In fall 2008, Clooney joined the faculty at American University in Washington, D.C. as American University School of Communication and Newseum Distinguished Journalist in Residence, where he taught Opinion Writing in fall 2008, and Films that Changed Us, a new course based on his book, The Movies That Changed Us: Reflections on the Screen (Atria, 2002).

In 2014, Nick Clooney appeared in The Monuments Men which was directed by his son, George Clooney, who played one of the leading characters, Stokes. Nick Clooney played the older Stokes visiting Bruges, Belgium, years later to see the Madonna, which was one of the many treasures rescued by the Monuments Men.

Nick is married to Nina Warren Clooney, a writer, TV host and inventor. Their children are Ada, a writer, and George, an actor, producer and director. Nick’s late sister Rosemary Clooney was a world-famous singer and actress.

Nick and Nina have lived for 40 years in tiny Augusta, Kentucky, 20 miles from where Nick was born.
