Radio career[edit]

Mason started his radio career in Southern California in 1992, working at XTRA 690 in San Diego. Previously, Mason had worked in Toledo, Ohio at WRQN. He is a graduate of Bowling Green State University, where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. It was in San Diego that he first teamed with John Ireland, a San Diego television sports reporter, in what eventually became The Big Show with Mason & Ireland. The show ran for over five years and for a time also aired on Fox Sports West cable television.

From 1996 to 1998 Mason hosted the Late, Late Radio Show with Tom Snyder and Steve Mason for the CBS Radio network.

He later did a stint for WNEW 102.7 FM (now WWFS) in New York City (The Anti Show with Steve Mason & Sue Kolinsky) before teaming with Jim Lampley on the Fox Sports Radio Network (“We Are There with Steve Mason & Jim Lampley). The show ran from 2000 to 2003.

In 2003, Mason and Ireland would re-team in The Big Show with Mason & Ireland, now in Los Angeles for the local ESPN radio outlet, AM710 KSPN. Until late 2007, they had the weekday afternoon 4-7pm drive time slot. In November 2007, in a shuffling of on air talent, Ireland was let go by the station, and Mason was moved to his present 1 to 4pm early afternoon shift. John Ireland came back 6 months later and their time slot was changed from 2-6pm.

Mason is a graduate of Maumee High School..
