Todd Romero, from Denver, Colorado, is a former employee of World Wrestling Entertainment, who worked as a backstage interviewer and a back-up commentator for the SmackDown brand under the name Steve Romero. Romero also co-hosted WWE Velocity as its play-by-play commentator, along with then-color commentator Josh Mathews.

Romero has spent 15 years in the broadcasting business, including 10 working for KUSA-TV in Denver, where he covered two Super Bowls and a pair of Stanley Cups. Steve then became the sports director for the KSHB-TV in Kansas City, Missouri before joining WWE. Romero would make his WWE television debut on December 18, 2004.

On the April 10, 2006 edition of WWE Raw, Romero appeared on television interviewing Kane because Todd Grisham had the night off. Romero made another Raw brand appearance this time taking over from Jonathan Coachman as color commentator on the September 10, 2006 edition of WWE Sunday Night Heat.

In August 2006, Romero replaced Todd Grisham as the host of the in-commercial update segments for Canadian viewers, where upcoming shows, announcements, and autograph signings in Canada are hyped. At some point during 2007, Romero quietly exited WWE, and was replaced by Jack Korpela.

In June 2007, he took over as the new weekend sports anchor for WKMG-TV in Orlando, Florida.[1]
