Stephen Steigman is director of 91.9 Classical KC and chief of broadcast operations for KCUR 89.3. Previously he served as the founding producer of the award-winning public-affairs program, Up to Date with Steve Kraske. Before entering public radio, Stephen worked for a number of arts organizations across the country. Stephen holds a BA in arts administration from Skidmore College and an MPA degree from the Bloch School of Management at UMKC. When he’s not working, Stephen enjoys traveling to destinations near and far with his wife and University of Kansas professor Tamara Falicov and their three children.
For Stephen, the IRC matters because the world is getting smaller and Kansas City’s role in it is growing. Knowing more about those around the globe makes us better neighbors and benefits us all.
