Earlier this week, we learned that Steve Scaffidi would be leaving his post as Oak Creek mayor to join WTMJ as the new midday co-host of "Scaffidi & Bilstad."
During this week's WTMJ Conversations, Scaffidi talks about the reaction of both his family and people close to him, as well as reaction he's gotten from the public about his new show at WTMJ.
Having spent a long time in the world of politics, Steve says while he is a republican, he's not going to shy away from criticizing members of that party and praising democrats that do good things in Madison or Washington DC.
Steve also looks back at his time at Oak Creek High School, his journalism degree from UWM and why he wanted to get into journalism as a young man.
On a more somber note, the Sikh Temple shooting is an event that Steve says he'll remember for the rest of his life. He takes Gene through how that day went for him and how things unfolded in the days that followed.
