In 1984 the family was moved back stateside to Colorado Springs which was Sage’s 7th-grade year. She spent just two years at her school in Colorado (Thomas B.

When Steele left the outlet in 1997, she moved to yet another affiliate of CBS called WISH-TV which was in Indianapolis, Indiana; she stayed here for just a year from 1997 to 1998.

Sage Steele worked at the station as a weekday reporter and a weekend morning sports anchor. She left the station in 1998 and moved to WFTS, an affiliate of ABC in Tampa, Florida. Sage worked for the channel as a sports reporter with a former colleague from WFTS, Jay Crawford from 1998 to 2001.


As fate would have it, she was to return to her Alma-Mata precisely 20 years to give a commencement speech at the Universities undergraduate commencement in 2015, an occasion that Sage recounted as a great honor.
