Jeff Chick Retiring From Tourney Broadcasting


Jeff Chick, the veteran basketball broadcaster for WQDY-WALZ radio station for around 20-years has announced his retirement because of ever expanding family commitments. Station owner Bill McVicar says he “will sadly miss having Jeff on 30-40 broadcasts yearly, but at the same time wishes Jeff the very best with his family and teaching career.” Jeff for years has done a superb job announcing at MPA tournaments, and even traveled many times on the school buses to interview players on their way home from winning championships. The Calais Advertiser and Machias Valley News Observer send their best wishes to Jeff and offer their deep appreciation for his years of assistance in providing basketball tournament statistics to the newspapers – thank you Jeff!
