While Steve currently works to improve Medicare, he previously was a TV reporter for WZZM 13. He had numerous features in USA Today and can still be seen every Saturday talking about plants on WZZM. Steve teaches and runs Grand Rapids Original Swing Society, the Guinness Book of World Record’s largest swing dance.
