Steve Kaplowitz

I'm originally from Brooklyn, New York and moved to El Paso in 1978. After attending Coronado High School and the University of Texas, I returned to El Paso to start my professional radio career. For the last 16 years, I've hosted Sportstalk, El Paso’s longest running local radio talk show. On May 1st 2013, I was inducted into the El Paso Athletic Hall of Fame in the media category. It's quite an honor and also a sign that I'm getting old. My favorite professional sports teams are the New York Mets, Jets, Knicks, and Rangers. I grew up a huge UTEP basketball fan, and working with Don Haskins is the highlight of my radio career. My favorite movie is Goodfellas, I enjoy listening to rock music, and I'd like to someday be a restaurant critic.
