Steve Shannon

Afternoons 3pm-7pm

Steve’s radio career started at KLZR in 1981 while he was attending the University of Kansas in Lawrence…that’s right, Steve’s a proud Jayhawk!  After graduating in 1984, he moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, for a short stint at a station called KITE 105, where he held down the overnight slot (back when stations needed warm bodies all day!).  But Steve was ambitious and was eager for new challenges, so he managed to convince the folks at WFLY in Albany, New York, to hire him to do morning drive in 1985.

When things didn’t work out there, Steve took his show to Portland, Maine, where he worked at two different stations and met the woman who would eventually become his wife.  Steve and his bride-to-be moved to Boise in 1991 to work at KZMG.  That July, he got married.  In 1993, Steve & Brenda welcomed their first child to the world.  Three years later, their daughter was born.  Then in 1998, Steve got the opportunity to take his morning show to KCIX, Mix 106.  Later that year, their 3rd and final child was born.  Steve continued to hold down the morning slot at KCIX until June, 2002, when new management decided to take the station in a different direction.  In the interim, Steve stayed on the airwaves in the Treasure Valley via Boise Traffic.

In 2003, the opportunity to do afternoon drive at KIZN, Kissin’ 92.3 came along, and Steve jumped at the chance to do country for the first time in his radio career.  After more than 13 years in that slot, Steve returned to morning radio on 97.9 KQFC on April 3, 2017.

In October of 2019, changes were once again made to 97.9 and Steve moved back to the afternoon show on KIZN.  Steve also owns a voice-over company called STEVE SHANNON PRODUCTIONS, and have clients all over the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
