Meet the Correspondents

Steve Kastenbaum came to Westwood One from CNN where, for the past year, he has worked as a producer, reporter and CNN Newsource correspondent out of the network’s New York bureau. Recently, he reported from Ferguson, Missouri on violent clashes between protesters and police. His coverage of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and investigative work on the so-called “Bridgegate” scandal resulted in several exclusive reports.  Steve was a correspondent for CNN Radio for seven years after starting his career at all news radio station WINS in NY. He’s won more than a dozen local and national awards for his reporting, including the 2013 Edward R. Murrow Award for Reporting: Hard News and the 2013 Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Use of Sound.

 

 

Bob Costantini joined Westwood One from NBC News Radio. His career includes reporting for Fox News Channel, Tribune Television, and CNN Radio.  He has covered the White House and Capitol Hill, Supreme Court, and the political game.  Bob has also covered many other major stories out of Washington over the years, and was in the Roosevelt Room at the White House when President Clinton made his famous finger-wagging denial about Monica Lewinsky.
