Curt Chaplin Career
Curt provided a version of audio play-by-play for one of the most famous moments in American sports history—the Miracle on Ice hockey game during the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, New York.
The underdog United States national team defeated the Soviet Union national team 4-3 in the semifinal round, beating a team that had won six of the previous seven Olympic gold medals. In an interview, Chaplin notes that he was assigned to cover the game as a sports reporter for ABC News Radio, not a play-by-play announcer.
However, Chaplin thought the game might be significant and found a spot near a TV camera to stand and narrate the game into his cassette recorder. His call of the game is now part of an exhibit about the game at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Curt has voiced numerous national commercials and home videos, as well as documentaries for Major League Baseball, including the current series Baseball’s Seasons. From 1982 until 1992, Curt served as the announcer for the USA Network’s long-running USA Cartoon Express animation block.
During the 1988-89 season, Chaplin served as host of the syndicated sports game show Grandstand (for which his former WNEW colleague Dave Herman served as announcer) and was the announcer and on-camera court reporter for the nationally syndicated TV series, The People’s Court, for the first 19 seasons of the 1997 revival before being replaced by original court reporter Doug Llewelyn on the revived series’ 20th season; he continues to serve as the show’s announcer.
