Steve Hunter was born in Daytona, Florida and spent his early years on Long Island in New York. Then in 1976 he moved to Tulsa. Steve attended Jenks High School (Class of 1985) and attended college at TJC/TCC and the University of Oklahoma.
Steve knew what he wanted to do at an early age, "I knew by age 8 that I wanted to be in radio." His first radio job was at KELI in 1985. After KELI, Steve worked for Magic99, KVOO, The Storm & Kick 99. In 1994, he joined KRAV Mix96. "I grew up listening to FM96 KRAV (Mix96) and getting to be a part of a legendary radio station is a great thrill. This is one of the few "heritage" radio stations in the market and one of the few that hasn't changed formats since 1976. In fact, KRAV was one of the first FM stations in the country and is named after founder and former owner George Kravis."
Steve is also the Operations Manager for Mix96's other Cox Media Group owned radio stations. "We have the best broadcasters, in the business, all working for one GREAT company." Steve also has a son named Adam and a daughter named Kathryn. Steve has been married to his wife Kelly since 1990. He also serves on the "Friends of the Fairgrounds" Board.

I do enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am lucky to have some of the best friends in the world. The cool part is I work with most of my best friends every day. Weekends and nights are spent with Adam & Kathryn. (Two of the coolest people I know.) I also spend a lot of time listening to the radio and surfing the net. Facebook and Foxnews! I also love to travel.
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are 3 things you'd HAVE to have?
It is a great city and a great place to raise a family. It is safe and clean. I am very pleased to see some of the progress that we are making. We need to catch up (and pass) Oklahoma City. I am excited about the BOK Center, Hard Rock and the improvements at the fairgrounds. Now we just need to fix the streets!!!
