Nicholson is credited with influencing the careers of many in the industry, “They’re working in Philadelphia, they’ve worked in New York, they’ve worked in LA,” said Rose. “His knowledge of the news side really was influential in their lives and getting them on the right path and he has just touched so many people, he really has.”
