A Clue! A Clue! Paw Prints Lead to WTAMU and Steve Burns
Blues Clues, Blues Clues, doo doo doo doo, Blues Clues. The man every millennial fell in love with as a child, Steve from Blues Clues, is speaking at WTAMU.
That's right! He'll be a part of WTAMU's Distinguished Lecture Series. Steve was such an integral part of the show, Blues Clues, on Nickelodeon. He was on the show from 1996 - 2002. He left for college and left his younger brother Joe in charge. When he left the show, little hearts were broken all over the world. After leaving the show, Steve dabbled in music, including working with The Flaming Lips and creating the theme song for Young Sheldon, he's done voiceover work, and has been involved in the Blues Clues reboot.
Fast forward to September 2021, Steve sent out a message to all his fans the day before the 25th anniversary of Blues Clues, and he pretty much broke the internet.
Now, old fans and new fans can follow Steve on TikTok. However, folks in Amarillo and Canyon, have a chance to see Steve speak.
“Bringing speakers to campus is always a way to engage in conversations as a community, and it gives our students an opportunity to interact with thought leaders across the country,” said Mike Knox, vice president for student engagement, enrollment, and success. “We are especially pleased to have Steve Burns, who will be familiar to people of all ages and backgrounds."
The event will take place Tuesday, April 5th at 7pm on the WTAMU campus in Legacy Hall. Admission to the event is free, and seating will be on a first come first served basis. The event will be livestreamed.
“Steve was a personality that many of our students grew up with,” Knox said. “‘Blue’s Clues’ was a staple growing up for this generation, and it was a groundbreaking style of children’s programming, similar to ‘Sesame Street’ for the previous generation. Steve has a personal story to tell about his own educational and professional experience that I think will resonate with students."
