Steven has to pinch himself everyday to make sure he isn’t dreaming. He loves his role at 88.5 JFM. He got his start in broadcasting at TV Channel 52 in Cullman, AL as a football broadcast recording operator, while a student at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville. He studied Music & received his associates degree during this time. As he pursued a career in music ministry, he attended Jacksonville State University for Music Education, where he majored in Percussion. It was during his time at JSU that he discovered his fondness of radio. While working at a grocery store between classes, he managed to work his way up to a supervisory position, where it was his task to make announcements over the loudspeaker. And, after many compliments on his, “radio voice,” he reached out to Jon Holder, the General Manager at a nearby Contemporary Christian Radio Station in Anniston, Alabama. Jon didn’t have a position for him there, but upon learning of Steven’s experience in TV, he suggested that he reach out to the management at the television station that he was weather forecasting for. That advice led to a part time job at WJXS, TV24 on the campus of Jacksonville State University, as well as the single radio class that Steven took at JSU, under professor Jerry Chandler.
As his skills grew in television, so did his family. He married his Wife, Cassie in 2007. And, soon upon returning from their honeymoon, he accepted a job at WAAY 31 in Huntsville, AL. That job would lead to more networking opportunities and subsequent jobs at AVO Communications as a videographer & editor & WAFF 48 as a news videographer & news broadcast editor.
It was during his time at WAFF that he felt the urgency to accept a new position both at the church he attended and WJIA. It was full-time ministry two ways. Since then, it has blossomed into full-time responsibilities here at 88.5 JFM / WJIA.
He lives in Arab with his Wife, Cassie & Daugher, Grace. He loves being a part of this community & he loves hearing from our listeners. So, don’t be shy. You can reach him on the show, at 256-505-0885.
