Daniel has been at WBCU since February of 2004. An Anderson, SC, native, he graduated from Pendleton High School in 1999, and Toccoa Falls College in May of 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in Radio Broadcasting. He credits his voice change and love of music to leading him into the radio field. “Everyone would always tell me I should be on the radio with my voice sounding the way it did when it changed,” he said. “I always loved music and wanted to be around it, but didn’t think I had the talent to sing for a living, so I figured I should play music for a living, instead.” While at TFC, he got his start in radio helping cover the 2000 elections in Toccoa with Lamar Ramey. A couple of years later, he interned at WNEG, leading to a part-time job. He worked full-time at the Georgia-Carolina Radiocasting home office in Toccoa for a few months after graduation before moving to Union. He is the host of Union County's Morning Show, filling that role since August 2012. He tries to keep his listeners entertained and informed from 6-12, and 5-5:30, playing a variety of country music, talking about artist news, community events, and giving away some great prizes each day. In his nearly non-existent spare time, he enjoys reading, music, church activities, and Boogaloo Folk Life Productions plays. He is a member of First Baptist Church, where he serves as music director. His wife, Katie Holden Prince, is a 2nd-grade teacher at Foster Park Elementary School in Union. They married on July 14, 2007, and their first child, Katherine Grace Prince, was born February 17, 2010. Their second daughter, Abigail Hope Prince, was born March 26th, 2015.
Mike Stevens came full circle when he returned to WBCU on September 1, 2003.
Mike actually began his media career 51 years ago as a 15 year old part-time
announcer with his hometown radio station. Since that first day behind the mic
his career has taken him on a path as wide and varied as one could imagine. Mike
is a graduate of Camden Military Academy which he says was the best years of his
life. His intentions were to make a military career as a pilot but poor vision
nixed that plan. Following graduation he enrolled at what was then Wingate
Junior College and later became a student at USC-Union the first year it opened.
Later he moved to Washington, DC to enroll in Grantham School of Electronic
where he studied to receive an Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering. He
still proudly holds his General Class Radio Telephone Operators License,
formally known as First Class License, the highest one offered by the Federal
Communication Commission. Mike returned to WBCU on several occasions, first in
1969 to become the station's first full-time News Director. It was during that
period that he received an award from the South Carolina American Legion for
Meritorious Service for assisting Deputy Sheriff James Lane in pulling an
unconscious man from a burning house. In the Late 1970s, Mike was asked to
return to WBCU by then station owner Ed Osborne to become Operations Manager
following five years with the SC Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism
where he worked as a Public Information Specialist and for one and a half of
those years as Public Relations Director at Charles Towne Landing in Charleston.
SC. He once again left WBCU to accept a position of General Manager of WAPT
AM-FM in Marion, SC. Following that tenure, Mike opted to go into business for
himself and returned to Union to found the Union County Shopper which evolved
into Stevens Publishing Company, a commercial printing firm. He sold that
business and later acquired the Whitmire News which he successfully operated for
about five years. As a result of some health issues, he sold the newspaper to
Hometown News and shortly after was asked to return once again to WBCU as the
morning announcer. He left his post as morning announcer in August 2012 to
pursue a calling to run for mayor. Though his bid was unsuccessful, he
learned a lot through the process, and returns to WBCU, serving as News Director. Over the years Mike
has accumulated a number of awards for his service to his communities, including
the coveted Distinguished Service Award.
