My tour of the Upper Midwest continues!
Hello, my name is Jonathon Gregg, a multi-media journalist for WITI-TV. I am very excited to join the FOX6 news team and have the opportunity to explore Southeast, Wisconsin. However, my TV reporting career did not begin in the Badger State.

(cue theme to “Music Man”)
I am an Iowan by trade, growing up near the Quad Cities along the rolling Mississippi River Valley. My boyhood summers were spent on the ball diamonds of small towns and in the towering cornfields, Iowa is known for. High school was filled with football, wrestling, theatre and band. From Northeast Community Schools I sojourned to Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. At Wartburg I began working in television news, graduating with degrees in Communication Arts and Theatre. My time in Iowa continue with years spent in Cedar Rapids and Oskaloosa.

In 2012 I heroically crossed the Mississippi on my way to Green Bay. I do believe the experience helped prepare me for my next step, Milwaukee! I have arrived with ambition and the hope to do well by WITI’s viewers. If you have a story idea, I’d love to hear it,

But if the saying is true, there aren’t enough hours in the day — it was coined with the Salcherts in mind. […]
