|February History Tales Features Scooter Chapman|
PORT ANGELES, WASH. — Scooter Chapman will take 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 on Sunday, February 3, at 2:30 p.m. in the meeting rooms at Vern Burton in Port Angeles.
Scooter was in the 8th grade when he came to Port Angeles in 1948. A couple of years later, he started working at KONP sweeping floors and taking out the garbage. 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 is well-known throughout the Peninsula for his broadcasting—and especially for his love of sports. He shares his enthusiasm whether talking about professional teams or local high school athletics.
