Steve Osunsami Career
Prior to joining ABC News in 1997, he worked at WREX-TV in Rockford, Illinois, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and KOMO-TV in Seattle. His work has carried him all across the country, from covering riots in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, to the 2000 United States presidential election recount in Florida, to the 2015 Charleston church tragedy that killed nine black parishioners.
He became the focus of political debate as he was one of many African-American reporters who cried live on the air on the night Barack Obama was elected as the country’s first black president. He also covered the murders of Rayshard Brooks and Ahmaud Arbery.
Steve co-created and produced the ABC podcast “Soul of a Nation: Tulsa’s Buried Truth,” which delves into the 1921 Tulsa race riot using historical recordings and interviews with historians. As a Black American with a high school and college education, it astounds me that up until lately, I was unaware of the specifics of the Tulsa massacre, and I think it is unfortunate. It speaks a lot about how we, as Americans, record bigoted and nasty history.
We prefer to treat it in silence. And, like ignoring a dispute with a family member, ignoring the injury never helps it go away.” Hugh Downs published the book “My America: What My Country Means to Me, by 150 Americans from All Walks of Life,” which included an essay by Steve.
