OAB Hall of Fame
Often referred to as “The Voice of Western Oklahoma Sports,” Chuck Edwards has called virtually every sporting event in the region since 1977. Chuck has logged over 3600 play-by-play broadcasts of Football, Basketball, Baseball and numerous other sporting events.
While best known as the full time Sports Director at KWEY AM/FM Weatherford and the Voice of Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Chuck has earned the trust and respect of all sports fans thanks to his dedicated work ethic. His scope of work and his contacts in the business are unparallel, and his enthusiasm for local sports is second to none. Chuck’s career started in Duncan Oklahoma in 1963. After a brief stint in Altus, he worked the next twelve years in New Mexico; first in Aztec, then Farmington. However, the pull of Oklahoma was too strong, and Chuck returned to his roots in 1977. Since then Chuck has been Broadcaster of the Year for the Lone Star Conference, called every Weatherford High Football game, and has been recognized countless times for his community involvement and as the Champion of Local Sports.
So, for a local sports broadcaster who has always wanted to cover local sports, Chuck’s work has tied him into the fabric of Western Oklahoma. As Weatherford football coach Woody Roof so aptly said, “Due to his broadcasts, Chuck Edwards has been one of the best ‘Assistant Coaches’ I have ever had.”
