Career Achievement Inductee
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.
