More than 22 years ago, Steve Wilkos began moonlighting as a security guard on The Jerry Springer Show. Viewers began to identify with his tough guy demeanor and no-nonsense approach, and Steve began hosting his own daytime talk show in 2007.
Now in its 9th season, The Steve Wilkos Show is hotter than ever. The show has experienced larger year-after-year growth than any other syndicated talk show and has been renewed through 2018. Considered a man of the people, Steve’s sincerity and straight-talking style continue to attract new fans, both men and women alike. The show has earned three Prism Award nominations for raising awareness about social issues such as substance abuse and domestic violence.
Steve is a huge sports fan (his hometown Chicago teams) and avid golfer and can often be found riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle in Connecticut, where he lives with wife Rachelle (executive producer of The Steve Wilkos Show) and two kids.
