The Business Beat, 10-10:30 p.m., Sunday
Steve began hosting The Business Beat in 1995. The show was born out of his passion for reporting and paralleled his duties as Editor of Worcester Business Journal (1992-2004), a regional business-to-business newspaper serving Central Massachusetts and Metrowest. Prior to that, Steve was Managing Editor of WBJ from 1990 to 1992 and of its immediate predecessor, Business Worcester, from 1987 to 1990. He also served as a Staff Reporter for Worcester Magazine, an alternative newspaper serving Greater Worcester, from 1992 to 1997.
Steve served as Social Media/Public Relations Strategist for CommCreative from 2010 to 2012. From 2005 to 2010 and presently, Steve is Principal of Best Rate Of Climb, a social-media and public-relations firm. He is also Account Executive/Content & Channel Strategist for WCRN 830 AM News & Talkradio. Since 2011, he has been a Board Member of Venerini Academy.
In his spare time, Steve enjoys traveling with his wife Lana Jones, who is a news reporter/anchor for WBZ 1030 AM in Boston. They particularly enjoy coastal Maine and Central America. His other pastimes include taking flying lessons, sailing, bicycling, roller blading, hiking, ice skating, cross-country skiing and, whenever possible, just plain goofing off.
