Steve began his career in radio while still in high school in the late 1970s on Cape Cod. In 1979, during his freshman year at Emerson College, Steve began providing news reports from the Massachusetts State House for various radio stations around the state including WROR and WRKO in Boston, WMAS in Springfield, WNBH in New Bedford and WCIB in Falmouth.
In 1987, Steve joined the staff of WMJX and WMEX in Boston as a political and general assignment reporter, heading up the station’s award-winning coverage of the Dukakis presidential campaign. In the early 1990s, Steve began working in television as a reporter and writer at WLVI-TV in Boston, and later at WBZ-TV (CBS-4).
Steve returned to his radio roots in 2003 as an news anchor/host at WBUR, and has covered a variety of stories including the Boston Marathon Bombings and aftermath, the deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School, congressional redistricting, casino gambling, the state budget process and the passing of former Boston mayor, Kevin White.
When not working, Steve spends time as an amateur Genealogist and Beekeeper.
