Steve Granado was born on November 10, 1992 in Whittier, CA. He grew up in La Habra and La Habra Heights, CA as a youth and attended La Habra High School, graduating in 2011. It was not until his sophomore year at California State University Fullerton that he realized that reporting was his true passion which led him to pursuing a life with a microphone. Granado declared a Broadcast Journalism Major alongside a Radio/Television/Film Minor at Cal State Fullerton, focusing on Sports Reporting. He graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2015.
As his college career came to a close, Granado shifted into Minor League Baseball first with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in 2015 as member of the media relations department, covering future National League Rookie of the Year Cody Bellinger. In 2016, Granado began his MiLB broadcasting career with the Boise Hawks, touring the Pacific Northwest in short-season baseball. In 2017, the West Virginia Power brought him in to provide color and play-by-play commentary alongside Adam Marco (now with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders of AAA-ball). Now in 2018, Granado has voiced varsity prep and NCAA sports around Southern California, including nationally recognized collegiate and high school talent from UCLA softball to JSerra Catholic baseball.
His broadcasting career has taken him to ten U.S. States as well as into Canada. Five years into his career, Granado has broadcasted baseball, softball, hockey, basketball, soccer, football, and volleyball for 300 games behind the mic and counting…
