Steven Ruffing joined the WSPA team in May of 2022. Steven is a morning reporter bringing you everything you need to know before you head out the door for the day.
Steve is from Pittsburgh, PA and graduated from California University of Pennsylvania (yes that is a real place) where he was an avid member of the campus television station CUTV.
From there, he got his first job at WTRF in Wheeling, WV as the first-ever Digital Reporter at the station. He quickly worked his way up to Morning Anchor and Reporter. In Wheeling, Steven covered a wide variety of stories, most notably the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the local community. In between covering the pandemic, Steven worked closely with the community and local law enforcement on a number of different stories.
Whether it was a local event, breaking news or just a feature highlighting someone in the area, Steven has done it all. He looks forward to using those skills at WSPA but looks forward to learning even more.
When Steven isn’t working he spends most of his time with his dog Jack. Jack is a mix between a Beagle and Red Heeler. Steven would be more than happy to show you a hundred pictures of Jack. Both of them love spending as much time outdoors but just as much time relaxing on the couch.
Steven is also an avid sports fan. You can catch him rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Penguins… we don’t talk about the Pirates.
Steven is excited to make the Upstate his new home and looks forward to meeting as many people as possible in the community. Feel free to reach out to Steven if you have any tips or ideas. He’s also open to chatting about sports, movies and TV shows.
