The "Radio Bug" bit Steve back in 1976.

Steve joined the staff of WOVK in Feb 2001, and joined Morning Madness in January of 2002... A self proclaimed "Golf Nut", Steve is also the mild-mannered Manager of Kurtz Monument Company in Wheeling, and a licensed Life Insurance Agent. A life-long resident of the Ohio Valley, Steve has somehow managed to stay married for three decades to his long suffering and saintly wife, Becky.
