February History Tales features Scooter Chapman


Local sportscaster, radio host and columnist Scooter Chapman takes a break from his KONP Radio duties to talk about the history of radio at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 3, in the meeting rooms at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. 

Chapman came to Port Angeles as a teenager in 1948 and two years later was hired by KONP, where he worked for many years as a radio announcer and salesman. In 1961, he began working full time at both The Daily News and KONP; in 1988, his career was solely at the radio station. 

Chapman wrote a long-running sports column for the Sequim Gazette from 2003-2012. 

In 2011, the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association elected him to its Hall of Fame.

History Tales is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Clallam County Historical Society at 452-2662 or e-mail artifact@olypen.com.
