Mixed Ohio Trivia Questions

1. The Cincinnati Bengals moved out of Riverfront Stadium after the 1999 season and the Reds followed them three years later. Which river gave the stadium its name?

From Quiz
Cincinnati Ohio

Answer: Ohio River

Riverfront Stadium was renamed Cinergy Field in 1996. Like the city of Cincinnati, the stadium was located on the northern bank of the Ohio River. The river forms the border between Ohio and Kentucky there. The Ohio flows west from Cincinnati and ultimately becomes the largest tributary (by volume) of the Mississippi River.

2. In 1952, a Cleveland disc jockey coined the term "rock and roll". Who was it?

From Quiz Pop Culture History of Cleveland, Ohio

Answer: Alan Freed

Freed called himself the "Moondog" on his show on WJW radio. A sound bite of his show serves as the intro to the song "Cleveland Rocks" by Ian Hunter.

3. Since 1999, Cincinnati has hosted an annual marathon on the first Sunday of May. By what unusual name is this race known?

The 513 area code once covered most of southern Ohio, including Cincinnati, but a new code (937) was created in 1996 to cover the Dayton area that had formerly shared the 513 code.

6. Which native Clevelander was the first African American woman to be nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award?

From Quiz Pop Culture History of Cleveland, Ohio

Answer: Dorothy Dandridge

She was nominated, but did not win, for the title role in 1954's "Carmen Jones". As her career slid downhill her intake of alcohol and prescription drugs increased. On the afternoon of September 8, 1965 her manager found her dead in her apartment. The autopsy showed that she had died of an overdose of Tofranil, the antidepressant that she was taking. It is unknown if it was deliberate or accidental. Hattie McDaniel was the first African American woman to actually win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress (as opposed to Best Actress), which was for her role in "Gone with the Wind".
