Milwaukee Radio: Steve 'The Homer' True Critically Hurt

Steve True
A fixture in Milwaukee broadcasting has been critically hurt in a car crash.

WISN 12 News has learned 59-year-old Steve "The Homer" True was struck by an apparent drunken driver just before 10 a.m.

The radio talk show host and Marquette basketball play-by-play man was in critical condition at Froedtert Hospital on Wednesday night.

Wednesday night, the president and CEO of Good Karma Broadcasting, which owns WAUK 540 AM ESPN, said he spoke with True's wife, Nancy, who said, "Homer is doing pretty well and that doctors want to monitor his condition overnight."

Craig Karmazin said,  "Earlier today, ESPN Wisconsin's Steve "The Homer" True was injured in a traffic accident on Milwaukee's northwest side. I spoke with Homer's wife, Nancy, tonight. She said Homer is doing pretty well and that doctors want to monitor his condition overnight. On behalf of the True family and all of us at ESPN Wisconsin, I'd like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers."

Milwaukee police told WISN 12 News that True's car had the green light but was T-boned in the intersection when another car ran the red light.

That driver, a 44-year-old man, is suspected of driving while impaired and was taken to an area hospital for a blood test. He was later arrested, accused of intoxicated use of a motor vehicle causing great bodily harm.

He has been the voice of Marquette men's basketball for more than 20 years.
