Steve Bitker


After graduating from UC Berkeley, Steve worked at KSFO, KYNO and KFIG in Fresno and KNBR in San Francisco before coming to KCBS. Steve lived in Tokyo for more than three years, working as news / sports anchor for JCTV. During those years in Japan and in several months that follow, Steve was able to travel extensively, spending time in Thailand, Micronesia, Philippines, Hong Kong, China, Kenya, Switzerland, England, Scotland and Ireland. Steve has been morning-drive sports anchor at KCBS since joining the station in April, 1991. Steve has been backup play-by-play announcer for Oakland Athletics on KFRC since the 2001 season after having been play-by-play announcer for minor league Sonoma County Crushers in Santa Rosa for seven years. He is the author of the 1998 book, Original San Francisco Giants, which features the Giants ' first season in San Francisco and profiles every member of the 1958 Giants. Steve has won numerous sports broadcasting awards, from associate Press, Northern California Radio-Television News Directors Association and Peninsula Press Club. The sports story that impacted Steve most was the Giants ' near move to Tampa after the 1992 season. It was a wonderfully satisfying experience to work on such a big story every day, to break so many aspects of the story on air, particularly because this was a story that meant so much to so many people in the Bay Area. News stories that impacted Steves life, that had nothing to do with his work on the Radio, were the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr and Robert Kennedy. I was 15 at the time, very conscious of the civil rights movement, and very involved in the Kennedy presidential campaign. Steve is married to Alameda County Supervisor Alice Lai-Bitker. They have two daughters. Steve enjoyed being a parent and being involved in his kids ' lives. In fact, hes been head coach of his younger daughters club soccer team since 1998.
