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,

    Rain, wind and lots of fallen leaves: City crews work to keep sewer drains clear

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Wind and rain combined to knock down bunches of leaves from the trees this week. That’s clogging sewer drains — and creating a mess with localized flooding. During the heavy rains on Monday, October 13th, Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works received more than 100 complaints of surface ponding — following by a handful of complaints on Tuesday. Part of the problem lies in the fact that Wisconsin residents are asked to rake their leaves into the gutter for […]
