Greetings! I’m Steve McKay and I’m the newest member of the Lite 96.9 team. It’s great to be back home in Jersey. I’m a 1982 graduate of Hightstown High (Mercer County). I started my career while still in high school, and judging by my grades, it’s a good thing this radio career worked out. I’ve been fortunate enough to live in some nice places and meet great people, but it has been a dream to make it back to Jersey. As another Jersey boy, Jon Bon Jovi says, “Who says you can’t go home”. I’m married with two grown daughters…all Jersey girls, and I’m the dad to two rescue dogs, Franklin and Rocky. I’ll be helping you end your day and keep you company on your ride home. I like to stay active in the community, and I look forward to meeting you!
