Steve Wexler rode his bike to WTMJ in Milwaukee when he was 17 years old and asked if he could be on the radio. That began a broadcast career that included on-air work at WTMJ and WISN in Milwaukee before beginning his management journey, building talk stations in Milwaukee for Hearst (WISN) and Portland, OR for King Broadcasting (KGW).

He later programmed KING/Seattle and returned home to WTMJ as program director in 1993 for Journal Communications. Journal promoted Steve to market manager positions in Tucson, AZ and Omaha, NE where he began overseeing TV and Radio operations, including WTMJ-TV/Milwaukee.

In 2014, he was named head of the 36-station, 8-market Journal Radio Group, a position he continued through Journal’s merger with E.W. Scripps. In 2018, he led the sale of the radio group to four different broadcast companies, including Good Karma Brands in Milwaukee, where remained as market manager. Steve is now coaching teams and talent at Good Karma as their Leadership Coach.

This session is presented in conjunction with other state broadcasters’ associations and is coordinated by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
