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 co-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..
