Steve was the News Director at KEYN 103.7 “The Rock of Wichita” during the 70’s. What began as a one-person news team grew to four reporters and garnered numerous state and regional news coverage awards. In 1980 Steve joined Kassabaum Broadcasting and served as News Director for KFH Radio. In addition, he also served as Program Manager for KBRA. Steve was then lured away to do a morning co-host position with KXLK where he also served as News Director and the awards continued to pile up. When 1330 KNSS was searching for a News Director, Steve’s strong background and news experience made him the perfect choice to lead Wichita’s News/Talk station.
