Steve Biddle came to WFDD after a long career as a broadcaster, both in commercial and public radio.  He spent several years hosting Morning Edition at Penn State’s WPSU-FM before coming to the Triad.  He spent his “formative years” in Orlando, where he began his radio career in 1972.  He has since lived in Hawaii, New York, Pennsylvania and Illinois.  Steve and his wife Tammy live live in High Point.
