A Lone Star Emmy-winning producer, the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters has recognized Steve with seven First Place awards since 2009 and a total of 16 honors in that time. Steve has also won awards from Headliners Foundation, the Houston Press Club and the national Telly Awards.
In 2010, the Brazos Valley Coalition Against Domestic Violence gave Steve its "Voice Against Violence" award for his live blog during the John Thuesen murder trial, noting "commitment to promoting awareness of domestic violence in Brazos County." The Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau named Steve a "Hometown Hero" in 2012 for creating the "Giveaway May" promotion, which was a partnership with the CVB.
A graduate of Indiana University, Steve was an anchor, reporter, photographer and producer for public television station WTIU’s award-winning student newscast. Individually, he was recognized as one of Indiana’s top student talents by the Society of Professional Journalists.
