The Show | Steve Covino
Steve Covino aka el Covino Weekdays on SiriusXM RUSH 93, LIVE west coast mornings 7am-10am. Self-dubbed “The Baddest Latin in Manhattan,” El Covino is a die-hard fan of the New York Yankees and rock music.
His passions left him with a tough decision: Either snag Derek Jeter’s job or rock the nation’s airwaves. He put aside his delusions of baseball grandeur and went for option two. In College, Steve Covino produced and programmed his own radio show (Upper Montclair NJ’s 90.3 WMSC FM) which led him to the Mecca of commercial Rock Radio – WXRK FM 92.3 K-ROCK RADIO NYC ; THE FORMER home of the one and only “King of All Media,” Howard Stern.
Since the morning slot was filled, Covino got a full time job in the Marketing/Programming Depts. Not completely satisfied with his gig as a “Desk Jockey” he finally got his breaks as the Producer & and co-host of “Solid State” with DJ Liquid Todd (New York’s #1 rated show on Sat. Nights) later called “Altered State” heard on 103.5 WKTU The Beat of NY. Covino then got a spot on The legendary, “K-Rock’s Hard On” with Crazy Cabbie (“New York’s Hardest Rock Show”)
Finally, by popular demand (A LOT of ass kissing), Covino eventually landed his own weekend show at K-ROCK which led him to the stratosphere of SIRIUS Satellite Radio! In 2001, Covino joined SIRIUS as the night host on Pure Hard Rock – Octane 20 and has been rockin’ out ever since (M-F 12a ET, Sat-Sun 9p ET). Covino was then hired full time by MAXIM Radio which is now known and heard nationally as “The Covino & Rich Show” Live Mon-Fri from 1pm – 4pm ET ONLY on SIRIUSXM INDIE (SiriusXM 104).
As of November, 2010, Covino signed on with strongman Derek Poundstone to cohost “Poundstone Power Radio,” a high-intensity lifestyle fitness show airing Wednesday nights, 7p-9p ET on Sirius XM Sports Action (Sirius 125/XM 241).
