Clooney, Borgman among new inductees into Cincinnati Journalism Hall of Fame

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The Cincinnati chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will induct Nick Clooney, Jim Borgman and Albert Huneke (posthumously) into the Cincinnati Journalism Hall of Fame at its awards banquet Friday.

        Mr. Huneke (1905-1987) was the longtime editor, publisher and the driving force behind the Western Hills Press. That paper, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, now is a part of Community Press, a chain of suburban newspapers.

        Mr. Huneke started at the Western Hills Press in 1926, then became associate editor the next year. He bought the Press with two others when the founding owner died in 1933.

        Cincinnati native Borgman, editorial cartoonist for The Cincinnati Enquirer, has won nearly every national award, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1991. In 1987, 1988 and 1989, his colleagues in the National Cartoonists Society voted him best editorial cartoonist in America. Earlier this year, his and Jerry Scott's Zits comic strip won its second consecutive Reuben Award as the best newspaper comic strip. (Borgman Web site)

        Nick Clooney most recently was a host on the cable TV channel American Movie Classics, but his reputation as a journalist stems from his work as a news anchor at WKRC-TV (Channel 12) from 1976 to 1984 and again from 1986 to 1988.

        During his tenure there, Channel 12's Eyewitness News expanded to a one-hour format, added weekend and morning newscasts, and greatly increased the size of the news staff.

        The ceremony will start at 7 p.m. at the Museum Center at Union Terminal. Tickets are $40 and can be ordered by contacting Mike Rutledge at the Cincinnati Post, 352-2722.
