Chapin said on Facebook he is from the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It got me thinking, and I wondered if he was related to musician Harry Chapin. Bruce told me no, but Chapin's mom is an entertainment lawyer. No cats in the cradle here!
According to his bio, Chapin joined WVIT in November 2012 as a reporter in NBC's New Haven bureau. Before that, he worked at News 12 The Bronx and News 12 Brooklyn as an anchor/reporter.
Chapin is a 2009 graduate of Duke University where he earned a degree in classical languages and broadcast journalism.
