Steve Benton

Steve is a radio veteran, getting his start in 1977 after receiving his Associates Degree in Broadcasting from Brown College in Minneapolis. His first jobs included stints as a disc jockey and in sales, but found working as a news reporter challenging and stayed with it for most of his career. He spent two years as the News Director of WGEZ in Beloit and then 15 years as News Reporter and then News Director at WBEL/WRWC in Beloit. In 1997, Steve came to WCLO/WJVL as the afternoon news reporter and then spent the next 13 years as the morning news anchor on both WCLO and WJVL. He now hosts the afternoon show on WCLO, but also helps the News Department with his knowledge of Rock County and Beloit specifically.
