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,

    GLENDALE (WITI) — President Barack Obama was in Milwaukee on Tuesday, October 28th — stumping for Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke — and at the same time, Governor Scott Walker and his Republican supporters had an equally busy day. Governor Walker and Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefish made separate campaign stops to cover more ground with just one week to go until Election Day. For the Republicans, there weren’t any big names on the campaign trail, but Governor Walker got […]

    RACINE (WITI) — The fight against cancer can be a long, challenging and emotional journey, but a young girl in Racine has a new friend to help her along the way — and bringing these two together was a journey all its own.

    Halloween hazard: FDA issues warning about decorative contact lenses

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Decorative contact lenses can certainly enhance a costume, but there is a warning about where you should get them. John Majdoch says he’s got the goods. “We’ve got it all. We’re at Halloween Express and it’s another exciting day in the costume universe,” said Majdoch, owner of Halloween Express. But there’s one item he’s not selling, and that’s decorative contact lenses. “You don’t want to get them from a Halloween store, in fact the FDA has a bulletin […]

    The final countdown: The candidates push to swing voters

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Wisconsin is just 10 days away from election Tuesday. It’s the beginning of the final push to swing independent voters. With a governor’s race as tight as this one, it’s not surprise one candidate has gassed up the campaign bus while the other is calling upon some political heavy hitters. The Saturday morning sun lit the way for a busy weekend of Wisconsin lobbying. Governor Scott Walker kicked off a 10-day bus tour with whistle-stops throughout the […]

  • Voters will weigh in on more than the governor’s race on Election Day

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — When voters go to vote on November 4th, they’ll not only be casting a ballot for governor of Wisconsin, they’ll also weigh in on several ballot questions. The state’s transportation fund helps pay for a lot of different things. Road construction is one of the most visible, but it also goes toward airports, trains and bus service. One referendum will ask voters whether a transportation fund should be created for the exclusive purpose of funding Wisconsin’s transportation […]

    Man on a mission: He can’t see, but David Kuhn is determined to help his granddaughter

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — An Illinois man is running, not across, but around the United States. On Tuesday, October 21st, his quest brought him to Milwaukee. Years ago, David Kuhn never saw himself a “runner.” The DeKalb native however, has always perceived himself a “family man” — and 12 years ago, he became a grandfather. Kuhn is running around the perimeter of the U.S., 11,000 miles, to raise money and awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. It’s the disease his granddaughter was diagnosed with […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Drivers pay attention! A major road is shutting down and by Thursday morning, October 16th, your drive to work could look at lot different. It’s the latest piece in the Zoo Interchange puzzle — the Bluemound Rd. bridge and access to it will be closed early Thursday. Access on and off at Wisconsin Ave. just to the north will also be shut down. “When we are all said and done we’ll have more of a traditional look […]

    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 […]

That stretch will be closed for half-a-year. “If you thought that the project had been big, it’s really going to start — it’s going to start getting big.

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A year after Kelly Dwyer disappeared, it remains one of Milwaukee’s biggest mysteries. The last year has been filled with search parties, search warrants, family pleas, and court appearances by a man believed by Dwyer’s family to know what happened. It has been a difficult year for the family and friends of Kelly Dwyer. “We’re working to find our daughter,” said Tony Dwyer, Kelly’s father.
