I have been a voice of common sense and reason from the time I first opened the mic in 1985 at WFMK in Lansing, Michigan. I have traveled tens of thousands of miles since that day pursuing hard news along with the most colorful personalities I could find. Spending nearly 15 years working as a television news anchor and investigative reporter, I was able to hone my craft. My message connects with people from all backgrounds. The last three years in front of the news camera, I worked for NBC at WCMH in Columbus, Ohio where my investigative reports were regularly featured on CNBC and NBC News Channel. More recently I returned to my radio roots. The Steve Gruber Show launched on four stations in early 2012. The program now has 20 affiliates delivering my voice and unique perspective each morning from 6 AM to 9AM. The Michigan Association of Broadcasters has named the Steve Gruber Show the best network morning show four times so far including the past 2 years in a row. I have interviewed President Donald Trump on the program along with many other notable newsmakers including: Vice President Mike Pence, Senator Rand Paul, Florida Governor Rick Scott, Ann Coulter, Senator Marco Rubio, Steve Forbes, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, Charlie Daniels and many more. The growing success of the program and the strength of my voice attracted attention and I have now become a regular contributor to the BBC on several of its worldwide networks both on radio and television, National Public Radio. I have also been featured on Fox Business, HLN and numerous other outlets. My writing has also been featured in the pages of the Washington Times as well as several prominent websites and magazines. Over the past 25 years, I have been a successful businessman as well. I founded and launched Wolf Creek in 1994, one of the nations most notable and successful outdoor adventure programming companies. While guiding the company, I created several iconic outdoor brands including the longest running television series on The Outdoor Channel, Outdoor America where I am the longest running host on the network. In fact, I own several thriving businesses today with my wife and Executive Producer Ivey. Together we have focused our considerable energy and talents into growing the successful brands. I have lived in many states but have always returned to Michigan. My family and Midwest roots always draw me home. Wanderlust however needs to be fed often so you never know where the next adventure may take me and Ivey, but you can be sure we will regale you with the tales someday soon. Stay tuned. There is always more to come.
