I have been at FOX6 since September 1990 and have enjoyed every minute of it.

Growing up in West Bend, I never would have believed that I would get the chance to cover events such as Super Bowls and Final Fours and Major League playoff games and NASCAR events as a Milwaukee sportscaster. In between, there have been so many feature stories with folks who excel far from the spotlight.

With continually evolving technology, there are more and more exciting ways to share those stories. This job is never the same from day to day, which is one of the reasons it is so much fun.

Thanks for letting me be a part of your viewing experience.

    Rapt and rolled: Bucks lose big in Toronto

    TORONTO — The exchange rate didn’t favor the Bucks on Friday night in Toronto, where they lost 124-83.  The margin was the sixth worst in franchise history, and it was no fluke.  The defeat snapped a three-game positive streak for the Bucks. Milwaukee’s young players looked flat in their first game since a triple overtime victory at Brooklyn, while the top team in the Eastern Conference was in top form.  The Raptors made 15 three-pointers and cruised. Jabari Parker led […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — What’s old is new for Marquette University basketball this season. Travis Diener, a former Golden Eagles standout, is back on campus — working with the new coaching staff. Golden Eagles Head Coach Steve Wojciechowski is the highest-profile new face on the Marquette bench this season, but in MU lore, one of his staff additions, Travis Diener, takes a back seat to no one. Together, they symbolize where the program and the school are. “With all the new faces, […]

    NEW ORLEANS (WITI) — NFL players may battle each other on Sundays, but they also consider themselves part of a brotherhood. Recently, Green Bay Packers Safety Morgan Burnett broke his road trip routine to reach out to a former player who is still a member of that brotherhood. On a typical Saturday night in New Orleans, family members and friends hang out at the home of Steve and Michel Gleason. Their son Rivers is the star of the show. There […]

    “The most annoying prospect in hockey?” Admirals Brendan Leipsic doesn’t mind that label

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Admirals’ Brendan Leipsic is known as “the most annoying prospect in hockey” — and the young hockey player says he doesn’t mind that label one bit! It doesn’t take too long to notice Leipsic at a Milwaukee Admirals practice. He’s a gifted hockey player — gifted enough to be a third-round draft choice by the NHL’s Nashville Predators in 2012. After two prolific offensive seasons in juniors, Leipsic is adjusting well to the world of the American […]

    His coach hopes he’ll have a standout season, but Marquette basketball player is already dealing with a loss

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The college basketball season is right around the corner, which means teams like Marquette will start counting their wins and losses, but one Golden Eagles player will be trying to help his team soar while carrying a heavy heart. This year’s Marquette University basketball team is short on players, and most of the players it does have are short by college basketball standards. Marquette, a team that’s used to winning, faces long odds this season, but Deonte […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — When the Marquette Golden Eagles take to the hard court this autumn, they’ll do so under the guidance of a new head coach. Most know him as Coach Wojo. But that’s only because his last name is rather intimidating. Can you spell Coach Wojo’s last name?

    What’s next for former Marquette University women’s basketball coach? Terri Mitchell wants to give back

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The college basketball season is right around the corner, but this season will be different for one long-time Milwaukee hoops fixture. Terri Mitchell has been on a basketball court as a player or coach since she was nine years old — so where else would she feel most comfortable — most able to discuss what she thinks about these days? “Besides relationships, which are number one, I say what are the two areas? My faith life — […]

  • Packers teammates Garth Gerhart, Carl Bradford grew up in “Horsetown, USA” – Norco, California

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and Jordy Nelson can always share stories of winning Super Bowl 45 together. A couple of Packers at the other end of the depth chart can share different stories. The 53 players on the Packers roster are not all headliners. Take Garth Gerhart for instance — an undrafted free agent center, he was bound for the practice squad before J.C. Tretter got hurt. Since a team can’t afford not to have a […]
