Steve Thomas – Rock 103
Originally from West Virginia, Steve started in radio at Marshall University (Yes, the one from the movie). After working at different locations in the eastern time zone (Huntington WV, Savannah GA, Charleston WV, Hilton Head Island SC) he made his way west with stops in Jackson TN, Paducah KY, and Cape Girardeau, MO. Now he’s made the move back to Georgia to keep Albany rockin’ on Rock 103.
He has won multiple awards over the years for News (1994), Commercial Production (1995), Web Design (2013, 2014, 2015) and Air Personality of the Year (2012, 2017).
He enjoys spending time with his family and close friends. Steve and his wife Rebecca, have 3 children (Aubrey 10, Mason 7, and Ava 5), along with 1 dog, 1 cat, and a flock of chickens.
Steve enjoys traveling with his family. As to not sound like a cliché, Steve doesn’t like long walks on the beach, but does enjoy sitting under an umbrella in a beach chair relaxing as the tide rolls in (Mostly at Myrtle Beach, SC). He also enjoys theme parks with the kids (especially Disney) and “getting away” for the weekend.
