DICK CHAPIN HONORED BY NBA AS "LEGENDARY NEBRASKA BROADCASTER"

The Nebraska Broadcasters Association has honored industry legend Dick Chapin with a “Legendary Nebraska Broadcaster” award.  The award was conferred to Chapin on August 25 by NBA Secretary-Treasurer Mark Jensen, Past Chairperson Joy Patten and President/Executive Director Jim Timm.

Chapin, 94, said “Your thoughtfulness and time devoted to presenting me with the Legendary Nebraska Broadcaster Award was deeply appreciated and humbling. To be recognized by your peers in your home state is something I never dreamed of.  This has made me feel really special and I owe it all to you and all the broadcasters in Nebraska.  Please convey my heartfelt thanks to all of them.  You have really touched me in a special way---and I will treasure the award forever.”

Jensen proposed the creation of this exclusive honor to the NBA board of directors, stating “Dick Chapin is truly a one-of-a-kind leader in our industry.  He has started and guided the successful careers of countless broadcasters, and has brought outstanding community service to dozens of cities as both an operator and as a broker who paired the right buyers with the right stations.  We are blessed to have someone who has made such a strong impact on our industry right here in Nebraska.”

The first broadcaster to be elected Chairman of the National Association of Broadcasters and of the Radio Advertising Bureau, Chapin’s career highlights and numerous awards are summarized on the NBA Hall of Fame website:  http://www.ne-ba.org/hof/
