Keith Stevens

Keith Stevens grew up in Northern NJ listening to legendary AM top 40 radio station WABC and dreamed of one day being on the air. At age 11, he started his own radio station from his basement and broadcast to the neighborhood; playing records, taking callers, and developing his skills!  He later attended Westminster College and hosted his first CCM show called “Covenant” which won an award as the best Christian college radio show in the nation.

Keith graduated with a BA in Broadcast Communications and his dreams came true as he was hired at America’s most listened to station, Z-100! In the mid to late 1980’s, New Yorkers came to know and love Keith Stevens, as “Bubba”, on the Z-Morning Zoo with Scott Shannon.  Keith says, “I went from being the “promotions kid”…to entertaining millions of listeners on the Z-Morning Zoo and hosting my own show on Z100 on the weekends!  Not bad for a 22 year old kid just out of college.”  Keith gave all his thanks to God for opening that door and letting him live his dream. But the journey had only just begun.  

In the early 1990’s, Keith felt God’s leading for something deeper, which led him back into Christian Radio where he connected with his audience in a new and personal way, hosting Afternoons at WWDJ-AM, New York, where he later went on to Program Direct and host Mornings with Sharon Davis.  Keith’s radio journey also led him to stops along the way at Y100 and “ALICE” 104.5 Philadelphia.  He also developed Web Radio for Lucent Technologies while holding down weekends at Q104.3 –New York, classic rock. But all along, Keith trusted Christ as his savior, and still dreamed of a Christian Music FM for New York.

“I remember praying for an FM Christian Music station for NYC.  People told me it would never happen!”  “Never doubt God,” says Stevens. “He’s the Lord of the impossible!”  

In late 2002, Keith Stevens was the first major air talent hired to help launch STAR 99.1, New York. For 8 years, the Keith Stevens “Family Friendly Afternoon Show” enjoyed high ratings as listeners poured their hearts out to him every afternoon. “Keith’s compassion and love for our city is so genuine. His impact is far reaching.”  Keith also hosted the weekly show “Made for Worship” and served as Music Director and Assistant Program Director.   

Keith Stevens has a vision to reach millions for Christ in our nation and the world. In November of 2010, Keith accepted a new call to become Program Director at KTIS Minneapolis/St. Paul. Keith says, “I am humbled to be given the opportunity to serve at KTIS. It is an opportunity that far surpasses anything I could imagine.”  As Program Director, Keith is already impacting the Twin Cities for Christ in a huge way. 

Keith and his wife Sue have 4 wonderful sons; Daniel, Matthew, David, and Thomas.  (and two really cool black labs!  “Buddy and Jake”) His joy in life comes from being a husband and a dad, and sleeping downstairs on the family room floor with the kids (and dogs) for “movie night!”

Dear Keith, 

Im not sure if this is the right route to go, but I would like to give a comment to the producers and I’m hoping you will forward it to them. I did make a comment under the Radio section, but realized it may not get to the producers.

I have been enjoying Keep the Faith ministries through the radio since the mid to late 90’s. There have been many stories that have touched my heart over the years. My husband and three children and I have all enjoyed this ministry. I’ve noticed something over the past several years though, that has been somewhat disappointing for me. So, I thought I’d share it with you. It seems like during the Christmas season, there have been more secular Christmas songs being played on your show. Since Christmas is only one month long, and there are thousands of Christian Christmas songs, I thought I would make a suggestion to look at sharing more of those songs. There are many secular radio stations that play secular Christmas  songs for the entire month of Christmas. I think it is important to keep Christ at the center of Christmas especially when you’re in a ministry. I pray this message  goes into minds  that will hear my heart. As the time gets closer to Christ returning, we want to take advantage of every opportunity we have.

Thank you for your ministry and may God continue to bless it.

It's a David and goliath story in real life man check it out.

Your Brother in Christ serving the Great Commision.

The goal I seek to achieve, is something that the Lord put in my heart a few years ago. It began as I observed the needs of others, realizing that I wanted to make a real difference, and an idea. This idea kept returning to my mind and I could no longer ignore His call.
Family-style farm living. Working the land. Learning useful skills. Helping thy neighbor. These experiences have shown me how men and women can bond in a life serving others, as the Father had intended. I seek to help my neighbors, those who may be weak and weary. He lead me to Isaiah 40:29-31
He has showed me the way and I believe I am called to help those who come from broken homes, people with no homes, prisoners who need a safe place to start anew and, of course, any person who should come to my door. The Lord wants me to open my door to those in need.
In order to open this door, I myself, must start from the ground up to build this door. I am lead in Spirit to find a suitable property to build a home, have room for a small farm and a few workshops. Once the Lord delivers this property, then I will move forward in the process the serve Him with His will. Hurst The Farm Home.

Good morning - I heard a story today in your broadcast of a woman and her connection with her father through the Rod Stewart song "Have I told you lately that I love you". Is there a way to find the recording of her story on the website? It means a lot to me. Thank you

Listen every Saturday on KSGN 89.7 here in Sun City, Riverside County, California. Inspired by Jordan's story and how he shared he felt he would always be identified by his past-addictions, my daughter has shared the same concerns. Wondering if there are any words of wisdom you can share with me as a parent regarding this situation?My daughter is 16, not wanting anything to do with Jesus or the Christian faith, though I raised her in it her entire childhood. Teen challenge won't take kids until they are 18, I had her in counseling with a licensed family therapist for 5months, he betrayed her trust and she wants nothing to do with a counselor ever again. Feeling helpless and stuck in a hard place of how to help her.

Keith, you are a blessing, when I hear your voice driving during your show, I know i will hear not only encouragement, but real and honest talk. I love when you talk with your sons on segments. We get a glimps of what a committed dad and caring dad sounds and acts like. Thank you for your upbeat deliveries! Lynner Beytien

Your program awakens me on Sunday with such awe-inspiring topics and music. It prepares my heart for worship and praise with my home church... Bear Creek Baptist Church.  :)  This program is an awesome addition to 104.7 The Fish / WFSH / Atlanta!  Thank you so very much for keeping and sharing your Faith of Our Lord God Almighty!

Hi, I am a 62 year old woman who lives outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada on a farm with dail-up internet who does not know too much about the computer etc. I saw on our morning national news about the famine in Africa and I just know another Live Aid concert (I pray) will become another reality to help with this crisis. I was thinking couldn't Christian Musical Artists do the same thing. I mean get together and sing from one spot and sent it out globally and then Christians would donate to this cause also, and u know I am sure non-Christians would tune in and see what the music is like, wow would that be something the anointed of God praising Him across the airwaves........ Just a thought, I know someone from Keep the Faith knows our Christian Musicians who could make this happpen I am sure.  God Bless u all, I love llstening Sundays, when I can't get to church and I have told all my friends I witness to about the radio show, gives them a little sample of the heart of a beleiver.....
Comment by Diana Tamblyn on May 8, 2011 at 12:08pm
I just wanted to thank you for Keep the Faith radio, I look forward to listening to it every Sunday morning, and I am sharing our station and your website to all my Christian friends and even non-christian friends so they can look into what faith is.... Bless you all, and the music is wonderful... thanks again. Diana, Canada

Hello,  I have been listening this morning,  I let go of all things as growing up in my parents house.  I moved down to pickaway county in ohio after my divorce in 2000.  My son and I resident down their for 11 years.  Then down their Andrew found God and I became closer to God and began to let go of my past.  Now my parents are closer now since I moved back up North to Union county and letting go and moving forward God has blessed my son and I tremendously. Now the two verses I live by Hebrews 11:1 and Pressing on toward the mark of Jesus has set for me.   Praise God how he works, now my pressing going through Nursing school to Glorify God in all that I do.   God will guide me and get me through school.
