Steve Long, veteran anchor and journalist, joined the CBS4 News team in January, 2012. Steve co-anchors the weekday editions of CBS4 News at 5 and 6 and Ten at 10 on CBS4.
"As a child, my dream was to be a broadcast journalist" says Steve, "I'm thrilled to have spent my life living that dream."
Steve is a Midwestern guy, born in Illinois and has worked in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa during his career. During this time, he has won more than 30 regional awards for everything from feature reporting to investigative coverage. These include an Emmy Award and First Place recognition for Overall Excellence in Reporting from the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
When historic flooding occurred in the region surrounding Sioux City, Iowa in 2011, Steve served as the Public Information Officer for the Southeastern South Dakota Flood Incident. As part of his job, Steve was responsible for providing vital information to both the public and the media. This experience will allow Steve to provide a unique perspective to seasonal flooding in the Quad City area.
"I've spent portions of four decades in television, but my greatest joy is being the father of two children," Steve says. He has a daughter Maddy and a son Dakota. "I'm thrilled to join the CBS4 News team, pursuing my passion, and settling in to the beautiful Quad Cities."
