Steamboat’s live morning show resumes Monday with new host
Steamboat Springs — The Steamboat Today Show returns for the winter season on Monday, Dec. 5, featuring a new host and plenty of informative and entertaining features that focus on what’s happening in Steamboat Springs.
The morning show, which is Northwest Colorado’s only live local television news source, runs from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays. The show can be viewed on cable Channel 18, and it is also live streamed daily on steamboattv.com.
This season, returning hosts Kasey Lane, Scott Parker and Katie Carroll will be joined by Tony Counts, who is new to the show but not to Steamboat. Counts can be heard on ESPN radio, and he also makes regular appearances in the Super Fun Steamboat Show at the Chief Theatre.
“We are so excited to have him on our team, and we’re so excited about the show this season,” said Lane, who is beginning her second season as a Steamboat Today Show host and also serves as one of the show’s producers.
When Lane is not hosting the show or performing on stage at the Chief, she’s an avid gem hunter and a lover of all animals.
Her sidekicks, Parker and Carroll, also love to be in front of the camera.
Parker is executive director of the Chief Theatre and a member of the “We’re Not Clowns” juggling group. Carroll is director of education and artistic administration at Strings Music Festival and is a member of the Chief Players and the Tongue-in-Chief improv troupe.
In addition to a focus on fun, the Steamboat Today Show includes regular features like the daily ski report, top headlines and events, as well as interviews with community guests, like the crew from Ski Haus, who will entertain viewers this season with their weekly adventure series.
The Routt County Humane Society will be coming into the studio every Friday for the show’s “Eligible Pet” feature, and bands are known to make appearances on the Steamboat Today Show as part of their tours through Steamboat.
“We are here every morning to bring a smile, offering local-centric news with a fun edge to it,” Lane explained.
Next week’s morning show programming will include a focus on Yampa Valley Gives Day on Tuesday, a visit with local artist Katie Moore on Wednesday and an interview with Dusty Moore about Bud Werner Memorial Library’s video program on Thursday.
