Senior Host, Weekday
About Steve Scher:
Steve Scher came to KUOW as a graduate work–study student in 1986. He stayed because of the quality of stories being produced and the intelligence of his peers and the listeners. Over the years, as a producer and host, Steve has had the opportunity to talk with senators, poets, presidents, a princess and a duke, but no one has taught him as much about human nature as have the KUOW listeners.
Steve has lived in Seattle since 1979. He moved here with his wife, who was pursuing a theater degree from the UW. She went on to work in many Seattle area theaters. She is now the business agent for her union. Her experiences have helped inform Steve's conversations about the workplace. They have two sons who attended Seattle's public schools. Their experiences have helped direct Steve's work at KUOW. The stories told on "Weekday," from education to the environment, are built upon these personal experiences.
