Steve Sipple has worked at the Lincoln Journal Star since 1990, serving as the lead Husker sports columnist for the last decade. Before that, he worked for 13 years as a Husker football beat writer. He also has covered Husker wrestling, volleyball, baseball and women’s basketball. In fact, he thinks of himself as a basketball writer who fell into a football gig — and a newspaper guy who fell into radio, joining The Ticket in May 2016.
Steve is a graduate of Columbus (Nebraska) High School and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism (news-ed). He began his career with a six-month stint as a sports writer at the Grand Island Daily Independent, covering a variety of sports but specializing in horse racing at Fonner Park. His favorite sport is boxing, but NBA basketball ranks a close second.
You can hear Steve Sipple every morning on Early Break with Sip and Jake, weekdays from 6am – 8am on 93.7 The Ticket and TheTicketFM.com.
