Merrimack Student Wants to Be the Next Jim Nantz

Merrimack freshman is chasing his dream of becoming the next big sports broadcaster.

For 19-year-old Harrison Chase, a first-year student at Merrimack College and Methuen native, being behind the mic has been a life-long dream of his. Harrison has broadcasted local football and baseball games for years and now hosts his own weekly sports radio show on Merrimack’s WMCK Radio.

“I’ve always wanted to do this, even in grammar school,” Harrison said. “My friends would be at Methuen High games in the crowd and I’d be announcing the games. I was 10 or 11 years old.”
