Collection Overview

Biography / History
Sportscaster Claude H. Sullivan (December 29, 1924-December 9, 1967) was born in Winchester and died in Rochester, Minnesota. He attended the University of Louisville and Ohio State University. He began his broadcast career on the air at WMCA in Ashland in 1942. From 1944 to 1946, he was with WAVE in Louisville, and he began broadcasting University of Kentucky football games in 1945. From 1951 until 1962 Sullivan was associated with WVLK in Lexington broadcasting UK football and basketball games. Sullivan also worked for WKLX from 1947-1951 and also had brief jobs at WNOX in Knoxville, TN, in Mt. Vernon, ILL, and WZIP in Covington, KY in 1948. In 1951, he organized the Standard Oil Sports Network, which included more than twenty stations carrying football and basketball broadcasts originating in thirty- seven states. Named Kentucky's Outstanding Broadcaster by the National Association of Sportscasters and Sportswriters from 1959 to 1966, Sullivan received the Golden Mike award from the Kentucky Broadcaster's Award in 1967. He was buried in the Winchester Cemetery.
