A one sentence introduction at an awards ceremony summed up his work and ambition: "Who has a cooler job than Steve Grant?!" OFF camera, Steve Grant passed the ketchup to former President Nixon at a Caribbean café’… prayed The Lord’s Prayer with Pope John Paul II during a private audience… was hugged by network commentator Paul Harvey for earning the highest local news ratings in the nation... and received prayer beads from the Dalai Lama after the Tibetan spiritual leader’s Arkansas visit in 2011.
ON camera, he is all about “what people want to know, and need to know.” Steve belongs to that school of broadcast journalists who believe ‘everybody has a story.’ As one of the most experienced, reliable and trusted news anchors in the Ozarks, he lives his childhood dream with every newscast and report.
He is known for his versatility. Finding, covering and introducing the interesting lives, greatest struggles, and best days of people across southern Missouri and northern Arkansas drives his work and all of the KY3 newsteam. Over the years, his assignments have taken him to every city, town and county in the station's vast viewing area. As a traveling correspondent, he has reported from New York City,Washington, D.C., Hollywood and Vatican City.
