London in the Morning - Weekday Mornings between 6 and 9am
Growing up in East London, Steve attended Boyle Memorial Public and Sir Adam Beck Secondary Schools, and is proud to call himself an “East End” boy.
Steve’s lifelong dream was to be a radio broadcaster. As a student in Fanshawe College’s Radio Broadcast program in its very first year, Steve quickly earned his stripes. Among his notable achievements (besides being in charge of pub crawls) was his leadership in applying to the CRTC to put 6X FM, Fanshawe’s in-house signal, on the air as a training ground for student broadcasters.
As a result, Steve was named Broadcaster of the Year in the first year of the Fanshawe program (1975); and, thirty years later, in 2005, Fanshawe honoured his lifelong commitment to the broadcast industry with his induction into their Communication Arts Media Wall of Fame.
Steve’s knowledge of his craft comes from not just a lifelong passion for broadcasting, but a long tenure with 1290 CJBK that has included roles in programming, sales, promotions and on-air. For the last two decades, Steve has been the morning voice of 1290 CJBK, and a source of highly-local news and information for London and region.
Steve’s love of his community developed as a result of his family’s deep London roots. His parents Jerry and Fanny Goose, well-known downtown merchants who operated J. Goose Family Clothing for 45 years, taught Steve the value of community service and involvement.
Steve, along with wife Michelle (who he affectionately calls “She Who Must Be Obeyed), and their two cats Max and Ginger, are active in the community and are proud to call London home.
