Steve Hartline to be roasted at CSCC Foundation fundraiser

Posted

Cleveland State Community College will be hosting its third annual celebrity roast on Thursday, Sept. 14, at 6:30 p.m. at Cleveland Country Club.

The featured guest to be roasted is Steve Hartline, owner of Hartline LLC, which includes radio stations Mix 104.1 and Talk 101.3 The Buzz, where he has been the morning host since 2003.

“Throughout the year, I have fun talking with people in the community about who would be the next best honoree,” stated Dr. Bill Seymour, CSCC president. “Many people said roasting Steve Hartline would be a great way to get back at him for always giving everyone else a hard time.”

Seymour continued, “It was easy to find some great folks to serve on the dais this year. Of course Mayor (Tom) Rowland is looking for an opportunity to get back at Steve and me for the roasting we gave him last year. Also on the dais will be Steve’s sidekick, Bridgett Forrester. State Rep. Kevin Brooks will make a return performance, but this time he will be joined by Rep. Dan Howell. Richie Hughes was eager to join the team along with Debbie Melton, Danny Murray and ace Banner reporter Brian Graves.”

With Hartline in the hot seat this year, Seymour will emcee the show himself.

Hartline began his radio career working for the stations at the age of 15, broadcasting high school baseball. He also broadcast Cleveland State basketball on the radio as a junior in high school. He graduated from Cleveland High School in 1996 (where he’s a member of the Hall of Fame) and Lee University in 2000 (where he was voted 2015 School of Communications Alumnus of the Year).

Hartline also won the 2016 Communicator of the Year Award from the Cleveland Media Association.

Hartline LLC publishes Southeast Tennessee Woman and Southeast Tennessee High School Football and Winter Sports Magazines.

The company produces several local events, including The Mix 104.1 Great Cleveland Duck Race and Mix 104.1 Family Expo.

Hartline hosts the annual WCLE Empty Stocking Fund each Christmas Season which raises money to fund a Christmas party for over 1,000 children in this community.

He is married to Jennifer, and they have two children, Reagan, 8, and Holden, 5.

For more information and to purchase tickets for the third annual roast, visit the website at mycs.cc/roast or call 423-614-8750.

Dinner will be served, and there will be a cash bar available. Ticket prices are $75 per person and $800 for a table with sponsorship recognition. However, all laughs are free.

The event is presented by the CSCC Foundation, and all proceeds will go to support the Cleveland State Annual Fund. Checks should be made payable to the Cleveland State Foundation with “Roast” on the memo line.
