Steve Chavis

Program Director | KUVO

Program Director

Steve began his career in public radio as an intern in Detroit and at KGNU in Boulder. Before coming to KUVO, Steve was news director for KBCO, KHOW and KHIH and spent a dozen years directing communications for an international non-profit organization based in Denver.

When he’s not tinkering with behind-the-scene details or writing memos, Steve can be heard on the air filling in for various hosts around the KUVO schedule.

Steve and his bride, Theonita, have been married 32 years. They are the parents of two sons, two daughters, a son-in-law, and grand-humans to their German shepherd mix “Bella.”
