Steve Butler was born and raised in Baltimore, but thinks of himself as a Memphian. He arrived in April 1977. A few months later, Elvis died and things "just ain’t been the same since." The reason Steve came to Memphis thirty-some years ago was....to work at WREC!
He worked on the morning show for two years and then on to mornings at WRVR for 25 years. He had a brief career in real estate, but after about a year, realized working in an industry that used terms like "amortization" and "multi-dwelling unit" was not for him.
He returned to WREC in February of 2006. Now he produces Memphis Morning News, does a little entertainment news, and tries to keep his pet circus monkey from destroying the studio.
When she's not getting up before dawn to deliver the latest headlines on Memphis Morning News, this Starbucks-swilling knitter can be found volunteering at her children's schools, or in a bookstore. She's a proud Southerner from North Mississippi who's waiting for her cape with the big "S" to come back from the cleaners.
