Know Your Neighbor with Steve Hammond – Friday, April 24, 2015
Steve Hammond grew up near Towson, Md. and was all about sports. Steve went to the University of Delaware and graduated with a degree in mass communications. Steve likes the news because everyday is different.
He worked for WHYY in Philadephia, Pa. and said he would work for free for two weeks and if they liked what he did, they could choose to hire him. He worked there for a couple years before coming to WBOC.
In 1987, Steve came to Salisbury, Md. He was the first bureau chief hired and he reported and anchored news.
Steve says Delmarva became his home after 5-6 years of being here. Steve had no intention of staying on Delmarva, but he got “sand in his shoes” and realized Delmarva was a great place to live and raise a family.
