Steve’s radio career started in 1983 at KMAV in Mayville, ND. Getting a year of seasoning under his belt he soon moved to mornings on KXPO in Grafton, ND. It was there that he got his first taste of High School play-by-play and has since announced hundreds of local football and basketball games. Two years later he was able to move up to the big city of Aberdeen, SD where he did mornings and play-by-play, helping to take a former 1000 watt daytime station from #7 in the market to #1 in less than a year.
In 1988 he found himself at KSRM in Kenai, Ak doing mornings, production and play by play. In 1990 he bought KASL in Newcastle, WY turning a once downtrodden antiquated station into a more modern one with computers and new studios. In 1995 Alaska called again and he came back to what he now calls home. Working once again at KSRM for 11 years doing everything from Sales Manager to Ops Manager. Putting new stations on the air and helping develop new formats as well.
In 2007 a career change called and Steve ended up operating heavy equipment on the North Slope for ASRC for 11 years.
But radio never really gets out of your blood and when KINY in Juneau needed a new voice for the morning, Steve seemed to fit right in.
Its so much fun being back in radio and getting involved in the local community again. I can honestly say that Juneau is the most giving town I have ever had the privilege to live in and I am so lucky to be a small part of it.
