“The Round Guy” Steve Pilchen ’76 is the Emcee for the Evening!

Born and raised in Central New York, Pilchen moved to Oskaloosa in 1972 to play baseball for William Penn. He graduated in 1976. After getting his MA in Student Development, Pilchen worked as a Pre-Sentence Investigator and as a Scout for the Yankees. Seven years later, Pilchen would quit his job and pursue stand-up comedy, which eventually sent him to Des Moines and transitioned him into a full-time gig in radio in 1993. Steve is currently the host of the The Round Guy Morning Show on KBOE Radio in Oskaloosa.
