The Russell Report/Gator Insider

From as long back as he can remember, Steve wanted to be involved in sports broadcasting. He's a Middletown, NY native who came to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida and he never left!

He's currently Sports Director at ESPN 98.1 FM/850 AM WRUF radio where he is the host of the noon time sports talk show "Sportscene" the longest running sports talk show in the area. He is also one of the play-by-play voices for Gator baseball as well as the host of the local Gator football pregame and postgame shows.

He has been an area coach at both the high school and middle school level and in his spare time loves to read non-fiction books and he is an avid record collector too.
