Greetings! I’m Steve McKay and I’m the newest member of the Lite 96.9 team. It’s great to be back home in Jersey. I’m a 1982 graduate of Hightstown High (Mercer County). I started my career while still in high school, and judging by my grades, it’s a good thing this radio career worked out. I’ve been fortunate enough to live in some nice places and meet great people, but it has been a dream to make it back to Jersey. As another Jersey boy, Jon Bon Jovi says, “Who says you can’t go home”. I’m married with two grown daughters…all Jersey girls, and I’m the dad to two rescue dogs, Franklin and Rocky. I’ll be helping you end your day and keep you company on your ride home. I like to stay active in the community, and I look forward to meeting you!

5 great family things to do right here in NJ
If you've never seen a professional hockey game, I highly recommend you catch a NJ Devils game. They play at the Prudential Center in Newark (also known as The Rock). There are a lot of places to eat before the game in revitalized Newark. The game itself is fast-paced and exciting. Here's a hint, the upper deck seating may be the best seating, as you get a full view of the ice. Although hockey has a reputation for fighting, those are rare. The crowds have a lot of kids and families. It's an exciting day out.
