Steve Hart is a journalist, editor, and project manager, with experience in podcast production.

Steve’s career in the media began in the UK when he started writing a weekly music column for his local evening newspaper.

With three years’ newsroom experience under his belt, and having completed industry training at Harlow College, he was appointed as a regional editor at his local newspaper.

Within a few years he became group chief sub editor and then deputy editor. At the time the company published 14 regional editions and had a combined weekly distribution of more than one million copies.

Steve worked as a news reporter at BBC Essex as well as at commercial station Essex Radio. In addition he hosted the breakfast show at Radio Basildon.

There was a sideways move into corporate communications in the late 90s when he joined Norwegian engineering firm Kvaerner – working at its London and Oslo offices as well as undertaking photo/journalism assignments all over the world.

He left to join award-winning contract publishing house Barkers Trident Communications as managing editor at its Canary Wharf office.

In late 1999 Steve accepted a role at the New Zealand Herald as chief sub editor of its daily business section.

A succession of senior editorial roles followed until he left in 2007 to work freelance. He was asked to return in 2014 to edit the property section and left five years later.

Steve has produced three documentaries and has hosted numerous podcasts and syndicated radio shows.
