Ken Steel has been a part of the WQMX team since 1991 when he was just 19 years old. Ken remembers WQMX making the “switch” from a light rock format to country music in 1993. “I never listened to any country music while growing up, so when they told us we were going to country I thought I was going to hate it. After listening for about a week or two though, to my own surprise, I really started liking it...I was hooked in no time.” After the switch to country, he went from working part-time on the weekends to landing a full time weeknight shift. Ken would be the 7-midnight host from 1993 until 2000 when he moved to the 3-7p afternoon drive time slot where he's been ever since.
His interest in broadcasting came at a young age. “I remember as a kid spending hours in my bedroom with a tape recorder recording different voices and characters and just being silly. I would make my friends listen to the final products. What torture that must have been for them!” Ken was lucky enough to grow up in Streetsboro, Ohio where he attended Streetsboro High School which is one of only four high schools in the state that had a student-run radio station. That station, 91.5 WSTB-FM, was where he really fell in love with broadcasting. “It was so fun and it seemed to come kind of naturally for me. I was always comfortable speaking in public or on the air. That's where I first thought that I could actually have a career in radio.”
After graduating high school in 1989, Ken attended the University of Akron where he was a part of the radio staff at WZIP for about a year. (Ken put his collegiate career on hold in 1990, but returned to the University of Akron in 2002 and graduated with a business and marketing degree in 2006.) After a short stint (of about six weeks) at Canton, Ohio rock station WRQK in 1991, he joined WQMX.
Ken has been a resident of Northeast Ohio his entire life and has lived in Akron since 1995. He and his beautiful wife, Kelli, have been married since 1994 and they have two children: his teenage daughter Hunter, and his son Derek who is currently serving proudly in the United States Navy.
