Career Achievement Inductee

Steve Goss


Steve Goss got his start in radio in 1978 when he interned as a writer and producer for Atlanta's WGST.  After being hired by sister station, WPCH ("Peach"), he embarked on a broadcasting career that few in Atlanta have matched.  During his 27-year tenure at Peach he contributed to the legendary station's success in a variety of ways -- as on-air personality, Music Director, and Program Director.  It was during his watch as Program Director in 1990 that "Peach" made the bold move to transition from a "Beautiful Music" format  to "Adult Contemporary."  In 2000, he oversaw the replacement of Peach's AC format to all Christmas music for the holiday season -- one of the first in the country to do so.  In '04, Steve was recognized with a "Lifetime Achievement Award" presented by Atlanta Achievement in Radio and March of Dimes. Since '07 Steve has hosted "Morning Edition" on Atlanta's WABE,  where he has earned the reputation as a savvy interviewer of current newsmakers.  Steve holds a Master's Degree from Emory, has been named an "Outstanding Georgia Citizen", and has received several national awards for his "Peach of a City" series.
