About Steve

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.
