SAN ANTONIO RADIO HALL OF FAME
Steven O. Sellers began his broadcast career in 1965 at age 14 at his hometown station, KAML in Kenedy, Texas. He started by playing guitar on a live country music program, but in less than a year, was made weekend announcer for the 250-watt station, a position he held throughout high school.
In 1968, Steve moved to San Antonio and started classes at San Antonio College. While making his mark on the college station, KSYM, Steve landed a part-time job doing news on KITE-AM. Although the news job was not Steve's ultimate goal, the media grapevine led him to a morning show opening at KITY-FM.
By 1970, using the air name Charlie Scott, Steve quickly made the transition from mornings at KITY, to his true goal, weekends and then the coveted night time show on KONO.
Steve grew the night ratings on KONO for three years, when he was noticed by top programmer Bob Pittman (of MTV fame) and moved to WPEZ in Pittsburgh as Striker McGuire. For the next decade, Steve worked as jock and news anchor at stations across the country before returning home to San Antonio in 1994 to host the morning show on KTSA.
In 2000 Steve returned to the station he considers his first home, KONO, where he hosted the highly-rated afternoon drive show for 13 years.
Steve has earned numerous awards from UPI and AP as well as the Southern California Golden Mike Award. He was named San Antonio Air Personality of the Year in 2006 … and in 2007 was nominated by Radio and Records Magazine as the Air Personality of the Year in the Classic Hits radio format.
