Steve previously anchored News 3's weekend newscasts, then Brazos Valley This Morning. Before anchoring, he was the station's lead reporter. In addition to reporting across the region, he's filed stories from Austin for the last four legislative sessions, New York City for Johnny Manziel's Heisman Trophy win, Washington as local leaders spoke to members of Congress, and Afghanistan where Aggies and Texans were serving in the war.

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. He also called sporting events and anchored sports updates on student radio station WIUS (now WIUX).
Steve also reported for five different newspapers, was a staff writer for an internationally-distributed magazine for children of military service members, and spent two summers doing radio and television work for the American Forces Network in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Besides being a proud Hoosier, Steve is also proud to be a military brat. His father served more than three decades in the Air Force. Steve attended seven different schools before college, and graduated from his third high school, an American school on a Royal Air Force base in England.
When he isn’t following the news of the day, you'll also find Steve at a variety of community events. He is member of the 2012-2013 class of the Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Brazos program. He's also an avid sports fan, rooting on his Indiana Hoosiers, the St. Louis Cardinals, the Washington Redskins and local teams.
