Steve Tasker is a sports reporter and fromer professional football player. He played college football at Northwestern, but began his college career at Dodge City Community College.
He is a former football player who was a wide receiver and gunner in the NFL. He was drafted in the ninth round (226th overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Houston Oilers. Tasker played most of his pro career with the Buffalo Bills, and was voted by Bills fans to the team's 50th season All-time Team. Despite his small stature, (literally getting confused with a ball boy) he became one of the most feared hitters in the league, forcing numerous fumbles. In 2008, the NFL Network show NFL Top 10 ranked Tasker the ninth best former player not enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He works locally in Western New York on the MSG Western New York cable TV station, and on WGR Radio and formerly for CBS Sports.
In April 2018, Tasker became co-host of One Bills Live, a daily weekday radio show focusing on the Buffalo Bills alongside Chris Brown on WGR and MSG Western New York. He has several times been a nominee for the Hall, and was a semi-finalist as recently as 2020, but has not been elected as of 2020.
