Steve Levy is a businessman, actor, and broadcaster. He graduated from SUNY Oswego in 1987 before beginning his professional career in broadcasting with sports talk radio station WFAN out of New York City. He started his long running career with ESPN in 1993, where he anchors for SportsCenter nearly every evening.
Before migrating to SportsCenter, Levy worked the NHL regular season and playoff games as well as ESPN’s college football. Levy, better known as “Mr. Overtime” in the hockey arena, holds the coveted honor of calling the three longest NHL games in television history, in 1996, 2000, and 2003.
And his talents don’t cease at television. In 2005, Levy appeared in the films Fever Pitch and The Ringer playing himself. Then, in 2007, he appeared in The Game Plan and in 2012, Parental Guidance. Showcasing his business side, Levy partnered with ESPN co-worker and former NHL head coach Barry Melrose in 2004 to co-own the Adirondack Frostbite, a minor league hockey team that was located in Glens Falls, NY.
Levy returns to his alma mater every so often, including to dedicate the state-of-the-art Steve Levy Press Box in SUNY Oswego’s Campus Center Ice Arena and to speak to graduating students on success after college.
