Chuck Schwartz (1972)

Schwartz has one of the most recognizable voices in western Nebraska. The station manager of KNEB-AM and FM in Scottsbluff, Schwartz broadcasts the “Area Game of the Week” for football and basketball.

Schwartz started his broadcasting career as a student at Kearney State College at KOVF, the campus radio station, where he served as sports director. He also was sports director of KRNY in college.

Since doing his first radio play-by-play broadcast on KOVF, Schwartz has called more than 3,000 games in 260 facilities and in six different states. In 2014, Schwartz was named Media Person of the Year by the Nebraska Coaches Association.

Before he came to Scottsbluff, Schwartz worked for a number of stations in North Platte as a sales representative and sports director.
