Steven Portnoy is a Washington, DC-based national radio correspondent for ABC News, covering US politics, legal affairs, advances in science and technology and breaking stories for the network. He also was a regular host of Ahead of the Curve, a technology-based talk show on ABC News Now, the network's 24/7 digital TV platform.

While a student at the S.I. Newhouse School for Public Communications at Syracuse University, Portnoy reported for WSYR (AM) and produced at WSTM-TV and WIXT-TV (now WSYR-TV). In 2001, he took first place at the Hearst Journalism Awards for his reporting on the economic downturn in the early part of the decade.[1]

Prior to joining ABC News in 2006, Portnoy reported for WMAL-AM, a Washington radio station that was owned by ABC until 2007.

In 2008, Portnoy was named a Peter Jennings Fellow at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.[2] He has since won several local and regional awards and shared in national Edward R. Murrow awards for breaking news coverage in 2007 (Virginia Tech massacre) and 2011 (anchoring the network's radio coverage of the death of Osama bin Laden), and for continuing coverage (Hurricane Sandy) in 2012.[2]
