A fixture of Los Angeles morning television for the last three decades, Steve Edwards is perhaps best known for Fox 11's “Good Day L.A.” where he first took on morning duties in 1995.
From 2001 to '05, he also anchored the nationally syndicated “Good Day Live,” which aired on many Fox-owned and affiliated stations. He has won several L.A.-area Emmys over the years.
Edwards’ morning shows are typically a blend of real news and casual, lighthearted banter with his cohosts, often attractive younger women.
Born Steven Edward Schwartz in New York City in 1948, Edwards earned a degree in history from the University of Miami and later studied clinical psychology at the University of Houston, where he worked toward a master’s degree before leaving his studies to pursue a broadcasting career.
His first broadcasting job was in the late 1960s with KMSC radio in Clear Lake City, Texas. He parlayed that into a job hosting a popular night call-in show on Houston’s KTRH. At the time, he also worked at the CBS television affiliate as a news anchor and local talk-show host.
That led to successful TV and radio gigs in Chicago and ultimately L.A.
Edwards and his wife, Jean, whom he met in college, have two children.
