Who is Steve Levy?

Steve was born in New York City USA, on 12 March 1965 – his zodiac sign is Pisces, and he holds American nationality. He’s a journalist and sportscaster, who’s probably known best for the work which he’s done for the American international basic cable sports channel ESPN, especially for his coverage of college football on the show “Monday Night Football”, as well as for his coverage of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Early life and education

Steve was raised in New York City by his Jewish parents, about whom little is known because he respects their privacy; it’s believed that his father was a used-car salesman, and that his mother was a high school teacher.

Because Steve hasn’t talked about having any siblings, most of his fans believe him to be an only child.

He became interested in sports journalism while attending John F. Kennedy High School in Bellmore, New York State; Steve wrote for the school sports magazine during his final two years there, and was also physically quite active, playing football and soccer with his peers. He matriculated in 1983, and enrolled at the State University of New York at Oswego, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications and broadcasting in 1987.

Steve’s career

Steve launched his career straight out of college, when hired to work as a host for the commercial radio station WFAN, but spent only a couple of months with them before he was offered a job by the regional cable and satellite TV network MSG.

He gained recognition in 1990, when hired to work as a sportscaster for the TV station WCBS, and he spent the following three years working there, as well as contributing to the commercial AM radio stations WABC and WNBC.

On 1 August 1993, Steve signed a contract with ESPN, and has been holding the job since then.

He’s mostly focused on contributing to the daily news show “SportsCenter”, while he also hosts a late night Monday show during the National Football League (NFL) season; Steve apparently thought about quitting ESPN after they lost the rights to televise National Hockey League (NHL) games, as he enjoyed covering these, but instead chose to focus more on covering NFL. He covered college football between 1999 and 2002, and continued again in 2016. Steve could also have been heard serving as a play-by-play commentator on the live game show “Wednesday Night Baseball”.

Since 2020, he has been working for ESPN as their play-by-play announcer for the professional American football league XFL.

Steve’s coverage of NHL

Steve is popular for his vast knowledge of NHL teams and their players, and has been nicknamed ‘Mr. Extra Period’ for having called some of the longest NHL play-off games in the history of the sport; these include the 1996 game between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins which went to four overtime periods, and the 2000 game between the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins which went to five overtimes.

Steve’s other appearances

Steve has been featured in a print advertisement for the Swiss luxury watchmaker Raymond Weil, and has made a guest appearance in an episode of the comedy series “Home Improvement”.

He could’ve been seen playing extras in a couple of movies, such as the romantic comedy “Fever Pitch”, and the sports comedy “The Ringer” both in 2005, and the 2007 family comedy “The Game Plan”. In 2012, Steve played a supporting character in the family comedy movie “Parental Guidance”.

Presence on social media networks

Steve doesn’t have an Instagram account, but is highly active on Twitter, which is something expected from a journalist. He launched his Twitter account in January 2011, and has today more than 120,000 followers, while Steve has tweeted over 25,000 times, mostly sharing various sports-related news items with his fans.

Steve has a Facebook profile, but seems to be using it just to keep in touch with his closest friends and family members.

He doesn’t have a TikTok account but many videos featuring Steve have been uploaded onto the network by other users, and these have been viewed over 200,000 times.

Love life and wife

Steve prefers to keep the details of his love life away from media, but it’s still known that he’s today a married man. He exchanged vows with non-celebrity American woman Ani in 2009, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members; Ani’s a lawyer who’s today working at Caritas Christy as a deputy general counselor, while she had graduated with her law degree in 2011.

Steve and Ani have three children together: a daughter Harper and twin sons Stone and Carson.

Steve hasn’t spoken of any other women whom he has perhaps been with and as of April 2022, he’s married to Ani Levy, and they have three children together.

Hobbies and other interests

Steve’s career has taken him to various US states and a couple of European countries, and he has become passionate about travelling, while his dream travel destination today seems to be enjoy Las Vegas, Nevada.

He’s a lover of animals and has a pet dog, while Steve often volunteered at a local animal shelter   during his teenage years; his favorites are elephants and kangaroos.

He likes to read books in his spare time and his favorite author is Agatha Christie, while his two favorite books include “The A. B. C. Murders” and “The Mysterious Affair at Styles”.
