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.

    Packers players, Brewers players and FOX6’s Tim Van Vooren play ping pong for charity

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Green Bay Packers have a long way to go in the NFL season, while the Milwaukee Brewers hope they still have a long way to go in the MLB season. Recently, members of both teams met up in Milwaukee for a charitable challenge — and FOX6’s Tim Van Vooren took part. Professional athletes will compete. They can’t help themselves! “It’s bragging rights,” Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb said. “I think we all want to win,” Brewers […]

    Skid continues, Brewers lose 6-4

    MILWAUKEE —  On August 20, the Brewers were 71 and 55 and riding high in the National League.  On Monday night, they fell to 3 and 15 since then and a game a half out of the final wildcard spot in the league.  Miami beat Milwaukee, 6-4 to continue the Crew’s recent misery. Yovani Gallardo became the all-time strikeout leader in Brewers history with 1207 by whiffing Jarrod Saltalamacchia and passing Ben Sheets.  However, nothing else went right for the […]

    Brewers lose game and division lead

    CHICAGO — The Brewers tumbled to their sixth consecutive loss on Monday afternoon, and this one cost them a spot at the top of the National League Central division.  Milwaukee fell to the Cubs, 4-2, as the Cardinals were winning at home over Pittsburgh.  That drops the Crew a game behind St. Louis in the standings. Jimmy Nelson allowed an rbi single and a two-run homer to Wellington Castillo before Jeremy Jeffress gave up a homer to Luis Valbuena.  Those […]

    Our Tim Van Vooren to participate in the “Ping Pong Challenge for Charity” — but first, he’s got to practice

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers have very high expectations for their respective seasons, but some of the individual players are also aiming high in another area — and FOX6’s Tim Van Vooren is set to get in on all the fun! The idea of covering supremely gifted professional athletes is one thing for our Tim Van Vooren. Competing against them is another! Tim Van Vooren is on the list of participants in the “Ping Pong […]

    Lots of anxiety for some Packers players, who are just hoping to make the roster

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — The final score of Thursday night’s preseason game for the Packers (vs. the Kansas City Chiefs) won’t mean a thing as they pursue their hopes of a Super Bowl berth. However, for some Packers players, Thursday night’s game will be as big as it gets. Guys like Aaron Rodgers and Julius Peppers would probably say that January and February are the toughest times for an NFL football player. The two senior members of the Packers know […]

    Brewers skidding, division race tightening

    MILWAUKEE — The Brewers still lead the National League Central division, but they are not playing their best ball of the season.  Saturday night, they lost to the Pirates, 10-2, which was their third straight home loss.  In each of those games, the starting pitching left something to be desired. Against Pittsburgh, Wily Peralta cruised through the first three innings before seeing everything go awry in the fourth and fifth.  He ultimately allowed 8 runs (7 earned) in just five […]

    Ready, aim, Fiers; Brewers win 6-2

    CHICAGO– Mike Fiers isn’t the fastest pitcher in the business, but he made quick work of the Cubs on Thursday afternoon.  The righthander struck out 14 batters in only six innings of work in a 6-2 Brewers victory.  Fiers became only the fourth pitcher in franchise history to strike out 14 or more batters in a game, and only a half dozen Chicago batters put the ball in play against him. Khris Davis hit his 20th homer of the season, […]

    “He loved it here:” Bob Harlan, Steve Mariucci reflect on Brett Favre’s legacy in Green Bay

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — The announcement that Brett Favre will be going into the Packers Hall of Fame and having his number retired is big news to many Green Bay Packers fans. It’s also meaningful to a couple of guys with whom he spent a lot of time in the organization. When Brett Favre arrived in a trade in 1992, he hoped to find a place with the Packers. On Monday, August 4th, 2014, he finally found a place back […]

    Upon further review, Brewers win 4-3

    MILWAUKEE — The Brewers opened a challenging homestand by knocking off the Giants, 4-3 Tuesday night at Miller Park.  Newly acquired Gerardo Parra hit a tie-breaking homer in the 7th inning to collect his first hit as a Brewer.  Parra also later made a fine sliding catch. Rookie Jimmy Nelson gets credit for the victory, thanks to a seven inning outing soiled only by Pablo Sandoval’s three-run homer. San Francisco’s Joe Panek was called safe at first with two outs […]

    Packers’ Mike Daniels is fired up about hardcore football

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — There is no doubt that Aaron Rodgers is the leader of the Green Bay Packers, but on the other side of the ball, a third-year player with a much lower profile is gaining the respect of his teammates. As the Packers get rolling with training camp practices, Mike Daniels is fired up. “If you’re not excited, go home. What are there, 1,500, 1,200 players in the NFL? In the whole world? If you’re not excited to […]

    No offense, Brewers fall 2-1

    ST. PETERSBURG, FL — Jake Odorizzi was once a gem in the Brewers minor league system.  Monday night, he showed why, allowing only one run in seven innings and pitching Tampa Bay past Milwaukee, 2-1.  Odorizzi was traded away from the Brewers organization as part of the Zack Greinke trade prior to the 2011 season. The only run of the night for the visitors came in the third inning on a home run by Mark Reynolds.  It was his fourth […]

    “You gotta take advantage of it:” Jared Abbrederis living a dream on second day of Packers Training Camp

    GREEN BAY (WITI) — Sunday, July 27th was Day Two of Green Bay Packers’ Training Camp — and it was Day Two of living a dream for Jared Abbrederis — the home-towner. Abbrederis grew up in Watoma and played in college at the University of Wisconsin. “You gotta take advantage of it. Obviously, I’m in the best situation for me possible. I’m excited to be here, but now it’s time to work and earn your part on the team,” Abbrederis […]
