Hi I'm Steve, morning show producer! I'm a pretty big geek who enjoys history (listen to my Steve's Stories segment on Friday's at 8:30am!), video games, painting, modeling (not the kind of modeling you are thinking of), and animals! I have a beautiful wife (and we're expecting a baby soon!) and two little furry children at home, my dog Kobe and my cat Moochin. I'm a chronic oversharer, so if you want to know weird things about me, tune in every morning from 5am-10am!
