Who is Steve Levy?

Steve was born in New York, USA on March 12, 1965 – his zodiac sign is Pisces and he holds US citizenship. He’s a journalist and sportscaster, who is probably best known for his work for the American international cable sports channel ESPN, particularly his coverage of college football on “Monday Night Football”, as well as his coverage of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Early life and education

Steve was raised in New York by his Jewish parents, of whom little is known because he respects their privacy; it is believed that his father was a used car salesman and his mother was a high school teacher.

Because Steve hasn’t talked about having siblings, most of his fans think he’s an only child.

He became interested in sports journalism while attending John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, NY; Steve wrote for the school sports magazine during his last two years there and was also very physically active, playing football and soccer with his peers. He matriculated in 1983 and enrolled at the State University of New York at Oswego, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Broadcasting in 1987.

Steve’s career

Steve launched his career right out of college, when he was hired to work as a host for commercial radio station WFAN, but only spent a few months with them before being offered a job by the MSG regional cable and satellite television network.

He gained recognition in 1990, when he was hired to work as a sportscaster for television station WCBS, and he spent the next three years working there, as well as contributing to commercial radio stations AM WABC and WNBC.

On August 1, 1993, Steve signed a contract with ESPNand has held the position ever since.

He mainly focuses on his contribution to the daily news program “SportsCenter”, while he also hosts a late night show on Mondays during the National Football League (NFL) season; Steve apparently considered quitting ESPN after losing the rights to broadcast National Hockey League (NHL) games because he enjoyed covering them, but instead opted to focus more on NFL coverage. He covered college football between 1999 and 2002, and continued again in 2016. Steve could also have been heard as a play-by-play commentator on the live game show “Wednesday Night Baseball”.

Since 2020, he has worked for ESPN as a play-by-play announcer for the professional football league XFL.
