Steven Kmetko is an American entertainment television host and reporter.
Kmetko was born in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. His most prominent job was on the E! cable network. He had previously worked as an entertainment reporter for CBS's Los Angeles affiliate. The television station replaced him with Ted Casablanca. Before that, he was a news anchor for station WAVE-TV in Louisville, Kentucky and WOTV in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
In 1999, Kmetko gave an official \"coming out\" interview to The Advocate's Editor In Chief, Judy Wieder, citing as his reason for doing it: \"It's like what Nathan Lane told you when he came out in The Advocate. It's about what happened to Matthew Shepard. By making this simple statement, maybe people will think twice about other gay people they encounter. Hopefully they'll look at me and say, 'Well, he's succeeded and come out and has a pretty good life. \"\nAfter his interview with The Advocate, Kmetko hosted the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association's Excellence in Journalism Awards on October 4, 2005, at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, California.
