Steve Weed

iHeartMedia Senior VP Programming for Central California Steve Weed retires after nearly 50 years in the industry.

“It’s been an incredible journey, from weekend shifts while in college at UCLA, right up to today,” Weed said in a statement. “I’ve spent my entire working life doing the one thing I love, never holding a job outside of radio.”

Weed started his career at the former “99X” WXLO New York and also worked at KIIS Los Angeles. He has programmed stations on New York, Detroit, St. Louis, Seattle and Sacramento. He joined iHeartMedia in 2010.
