GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (November 2, 2023)(CNBNews)--We are currently republishing articles and photos from the Gloucester City News, which were published when the Cleary family owned the newspaper. George F. Cleary Sr. worked as a reporter for the paper from 1948 to 1950, and soon after that, he and his wife, Mazie Cleary, acquired the paper. In 1968, William E. Cleary Sr. began his career as a reporter. Ten years later, in 1978, he was named editor of the Gloucester City News and the Camden County Record. In 1984, he and his wife, Connie J. (Sarlo) Cleary, became the proud owners of the weekly publication. Even after the Clearys sold the paper in 2003, William wrote a weekly column until 2013. 

It is important to note that in 2006, William launched CNBNewsnet. This daily blog covers news in South Jersey and the Philadelphia region, focusing on the communities of Audubon, Brooklawn, Bellmawr, Gloucester City, Gloucester Township, Runnemede, and Westville. For over 75 years now, the Cleary family has been providing exceptional news coverage for this area.
