Adventures In Autism, Radio & Sports - Starting Over with Steve Warne

Adventures In Autism, Radio & Sports - Starting Over with Steve Warne

This week I talk with my former colleague veteran radio broadcaster Steve Warne. Until just recently, for 31 years Steve set his alarm clock for 4 am and made his way into the radio booth for the morning drive.

He made a real name for himself as the popular host of TGOR, three guys on the radio on TSN 1200 for the last 19 years. Throughout the years, Steve has been an advocate for raising funds and awareness around Autism, something his son Michael was diagnosed with by the age of 2. The father and son duo have teamed up for their blog and YouTube channel Adventures In Autism .

Now at 52, and with an unexpected departure from the show due to layoffs, Steve has launched his own podcast called “The Steve Warne Project”…

The first half of our podcast is focused on his journey into radio, the challenges of the industry, his passion for sports and what made his job so unique. The second half of the podcast focuses on life raising a child who has autism. Steve is very candid as we chat, touching on the everyday challenges, the early years of education, awareness and fundraising and takes us through the stages of acceptance. His outlook on the daily adventures he has with his son Michael are beautiful. There are plenty of life lessons to be learned and I really appreciate Steve helping us shed light on the stigma associated with autism.
