Chase is a born Buckeye. He grew up in Richwood, Ohio in Union County. He has attended and cheered on the Ohio State football and basketball teams ever since he can remember. One of his earliest sports memories came in the 1997 Rose Bowl when Joe Germaine led Ohio State back in the final minute over Arizona State to win 20-17.
Chase joined the WHIZ Sports Team in February 2013. He graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University in December 2012 where he worked as a Sports Producer and Anchor for the school's TV station, WIWU TV. While there, he was able to do play-by-play announcing and cover the school's basketball team in their National Tournament in Branson, Missouri. He also interned for both WBNS 10 TV and NBC 4 Sports in Columbus the past two summers.
In his free time, naturally, Chase loves to play and watch all kinds of sports. He is an avid golfer, runner, and basketball player. When not doing something sports-related, he loves playing the piano and hanging out with his family. Most recently his new niece! He is also an active member of his home church, Richwood Church of Christ.
Chase is excited to continue his broadcasting career in Zanesville and learn more about the local teams. And of course, cheer on his beloved Buckeyes! More than anything, Chase loves to hear and tell a good story. So if you have an idea or know of a newsworthy player or team, let him know!
