Steve Tawa joined KYW Newsradio in 1990, and splits his time between reporting and anchoring.
He enjoys the mix of having a front row seat at stories that have been part of Philadelphia’s recent history, interviewing newsmakers, and pointing his microphone like a camera to incorporate sounds in his reports — as well as telling listeners about breaking events near and far while anchoring half-hour news blocks.
He previously worked through the 1980s at WCAU Radio in Philadelphia, covering City Hall and the courts, and anchoring afternoons.
He began his career at WNHC in New Haven, anchoring afternoons, and then spent time as a city hall reporter at WEBR in Buffalo.
His first “big break” in broadcasting came during his college years in Boston, annoucing sales items over the public address system at Sears, Roebuck and Co. near Harvard Square.
When not on the street or in the studio for KYW, Steve noodles on the piano, collects classical and jazz music, and rides his bicycle up and down Main Line hills. He lives in Center City.
