Steve, thanks for your time!

What is your current position/Channel/Shift? Weekend Anchor/Reporter CBS News 8
How are things with you right now? Life, work….. These are exciting times for me both professionally and personally. This year marks my 20th anniversary at KFMB! Our weekend shows are #1 at 5, 6:30 and 11. Our news team is expanding to accommodate more newscasts we'll be starting soon on the CW affiliate. Our management team is stable and great to work for. Personally, my wife and I are bracing for our eldest daughter heading to college out of state in the fall... and our son just got his driving permit... so if I seem a little stressed these days... well....
Do you have anything you’d like to talk about? Such as stories from TV News? The crazy thing about my job, is that I really don't know what I'm covering until I walk in the door... and even then, it could change 3 times. Stories…
