Steve received a Bachelor of Science degree from Houghton College in Houghton, NY and began working for the owner and General Manager, Paul Lotters, in the early '80's on a Christian newspaper called "ALIVE", which was named after the verse in Romans 6:11, which says, "In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but ALIVE to God in Christ Jesus!"

Rochelle grew up in the Caribbean and moved to the United States in 2007 to attend College. She loves to perform and may utilize one of her different accents as she hosts weekday afternoons from 12-3pm here at ALIVE Radio Network. Getting to know Rochelle on air is like meeting a few new friends!
Rochelle was raised a Christian her entire life, but it wasn't until a few years back that she re-affirmed her faith in Christ. It was then that she felt her Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Syracuse University should be used to deliver GOD's Good News.
She says, "I've been in a spot where you feel like you're wandering without a purpose. It isn't until we find that great joy in Christ that we cease from wandering." After relocating from Long Island to Albany in October of 2012, Rochelle began working as the afternoon host here at ALIVE Radio Network. She also assists in sales and marketing as a willing and open vessel for the Lord to use.
Rochelle is the newest and youngest member of the ALIVE Radio Network. "I think I bring a youthful presence to the group, helping us stay current with the times," Rochelle says with a smile.
