Nick Clooney at Annual Walter Cronkite celebration at Martha’s Vineyard

Post by silly girl on Sat Aug 04 2012, 10:17

From the Boston Globe---you need a subscription to see the whole article----Nick Clooney was there:


The life of Walt Cronkite was celebrated on Martha’s Vineyard this week. The annual event, put on by the Stone Soup Leadership Institute, was attended by family and friends of the late great CBS newsman, including Nick Clooney, a former Ohio news anchor and father of actor George Clooney. (Clooney the elder joked that his own tombstone will read: “Nick Clooney, brother of Rosemary Clooney and father of George Clooney, died.”) Also there was “Ally McBeal” producer Jeffrey Kramer, D.C. attorney Amy Goldson, “Hitchhiking With Larry David” author Paul Samuel Dolman, Roni DeLuz and James Hester, authors of “21 Pounds in 21 Days: The Martha’s Vineyard Diet Detox,” and Stone Soup’s director, Marianne Larned. Following the get-together at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown, the crowd moved to the waterfront home of Kim and Drew Conway for a reception.

Nick Clooney — the father of movie star George and a former TV news anchor — made a trip to Martha’s Vineyard to host a tribute to his late pal Walter Cronkite at the Stone Soup Leadership Institute’s third annual Walter Cronkite Awards ceremony. Clooney joked about his family’s Hollywood roots, quipping, “My tombstone and eulogy will read, ‘Brother of Rosemary Clooney and father of George Clooney died today, period.’ ” Guests at the event, where Charlayne Hunter-Gault received the Cronkite Award, were Cronkite’s daughter Kathy, author James Hester, “Ally McBeal” producer Jeffrey Kramer and Kim and Drew Conway.

He looks good here. A bit more spry than a couple weeks ago at Como.

I think it's a file photo - I guess from a Leatherheads premiere based on the backdrop.
