The voice of Whatcom sports

The Lynden Tribune

For more than five decades, turning on the radio in Whatcom County to catch the big prep football or basketball game meant listening for a certain voice, one that clearly understood the action and was an integral part in bringing the prep scene to life.

That voice, of course, belongs to the now 83-year-old Dick Stark, a longtime broadcaster for local radio sister stations KPUG and KGMI.

Over the course of his career, Stark covered numerous state basketball tournaments and marquee football matchups and he was even considered the “Voice of the Vikings” while covering sports for Western Washington University. He has received many honors, from induction into the Washington State Football Coaches Hall of Fame to the Dave Duvall Award for Community Service.
