Steve Burguiere, known better as "Stu," (born February 9, 1976) is an American radio producer and personality, and executive producer and the head writer of The Glenn Beck Program on Premiere Networks.
Early and personal life
Burguiere was born in Tarrytown, New York, and grew up in the state of Connecticut. After high school he was an intern at the New Haven radio station KC101. He started in the promotions department, working his way up to producer of the "Glenn Beck Morning Show". He also did voice-over work and recorded commercials for the Metabolife company. Burguiere met his future wife at KC101, Lisa Paige. Lisa previously worked at Q102 in Philadelphia as a mid-day host. She made her first national television debut on NBC as the announcer for the 2005 Radio Music Awards.
Glenn Beck left KC101 to work in talk radio at WFLA in Tampa. Soon after, Burguiere took his job as co-host of the morning show with Vinnie Penn. After a year, he moved to Tampa to produce the "Glenn Beck Program", and host "The Stu Show" on Saturdays on WFLA. Burguiere introduced many humorous elements to the Glenn Beck show, posing as celebrity callers (such as Obama advisor "Honkey Whitesville", a parody of real-life Obama advisor Jason Furman) and generally provided a friendly counterpoint to Beck. Burguiere and fellow staff member Dan Andros occasionally hosted after-show shows on Beck's "Insider" audio stream. Burguiere also filled in as host for Beck since the show became nationally syndicated.
Burguiere now co-hosts Pat & Stu with Pat Gray, a 2 hour-long program available on the Dish Network channel 212 and "The Blaze TV" online every weekday at 12:00 Noon ET. He is also the host of The Wonderful World of Stu which airs 10:00 PM ET every Saturday.
