Condolences to family and friends of former longtime WBBF-A/ROCHESTER, NY personality NICK NICKSON, who has passed away at 93, according to the ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE.
NICKSON, born NICK NICKITIADES, worked on LONG ISLAND before joining WARC-A in 1947. WARC became Top 40 giant WBBF, and NICKSON was on the air there, known as "The Ole Professor," until 1967, when he became Sales Manager and came off the air. He later served as GSM at WBBF and FM sister WBFB, and Sales Manager at crosstown WHAM-A.
Among NICKSON's survivors is his son NICK NICKSON JR., the radio voice of the LOS ANGELES KINGS and a Hockey Hall of Fame member, who just today was moved to KINGS TV coverage to fill in for another Hall of Famer, BOB MILLER, while the latter has heart bypass surgery.
