Chapman remained close to his local roots even after he moved out of the
area. When Edwin V. Johnson, long-time WHAV news director, passed away in
2003, Chapman was one of several people who contributed to a scholarship in
Johnson's honor at Haverhill High School.

Subject: Ron WHAV?

I was glancing through Inside Radio and came across an article about Ron
Chapman (of KLIF, KVIL fame, and half of "Charlie and Harrigan" for a time).

The article said he "began his radio career after HD graduation at WHAV-AM
in Haverhill Mass in 1953".

I never heard anyone mention that Chapman was from Massachusetts, and the
Merimack Valley.

Anyone know of his early years in Haverhill and WHAV?

I thought I would have heard this during their "brief" gig at WRKO as
"Charlie and Harrigan".
