He’s most proud of his work covering more than 50 cold cases in one year. His coverage helped detectives receive hundreds of tips on the region’s most challenging investigations.

Before his time in the Ocean State, Steve spent two years cutting his teeth in the mornings at KFDX in Wichita Falls, TX. In the evenings, he earned his master’s in International Relations at Midwestern State University.
He interned in college at several Phoenix television and radio stations. He always wanted to come back to the desert and cherishes the opportunity to now tell your stories in Phoenix.
