Growing up in Moncks Corner, S.C. Doug Stewart never dreamed of being a sports radio host, but Doug and his brother, Ryan Stewart, followed the advice of friends one day and called 790 The Zone in Atlanta to get some air-time to talk sports. As their fans, affectionately known as the “dogs and poodles” will tell you, the rest is history.
The 2 Live Stews debuted in 2001, becoming the first African American brothers to host a sports radio show. The show was nationally syndicated in 2005 by Sporting News Radio and Reach Media. Doug and Ryan eventually landed a deal to appear on ESPN2’s First Take. A run that lasted over five years. The Stews also had their own show on ESPN and hosted the series Black Men Revealed on TV One.
The 2 Live Stews show ended in 2012, but both Stews remain active in media. Doug currently hosts the popular radio show The Doug Stewart Show. His show features topics such as sports, guy talk, social issues and pop culture. Stewart is married and the father of three daughters. He attended Newberry College and is a proud graduate of South Carolina State University. In addition, he is an active member of the Delta Mu Mu chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and St. James Lodge #4 (Prince Hall Mason).
