Stephen Steigman

Director, 91.9 Classical KC

After growing up on the east coast and spending his first professional years in classical music, Stephen moved to Kansas City in 1995 expecting to leave after a few years. (Clearly that didn't happen.) More than two and a half decades and three kids later, he doesn't regret his decision to stick around. Stephen began his career in public radio as a classical music host. As the founding producer of Up to Date with Steve Kraske, he received a number of local and national awards for his work on the program. From 2014 to 2022, Stephen served as chief of broadcast operations. In 2020 he helped launch KCUR's sister station, 91.9 Classical KCand is now its director. When Stephen isn't at Classical KC's studios, he's probably adding more stamps to his passport with his wife and their three kids. His son almost made him cry during a drive through the Rockies when he said at age 8: "Dad, can we listen to public radio?" Sniff sniff.
