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.

    Latest loss hard to digest, Brewers fall 9-1

    MILWAUKEE — Manager Ron Roenicke said that the final score of Thursday afternoon’s Brewers loss to the Phillies was ridiculous, and he wasn’t finding any argument.  Milwaukee not only blew a 1-0 eighth inning advantage, but wound up falling, 9-1.  It was the ninth loss in the last ten games for the Brewers, who still lead the NL Central division by two games over the Cardinals, who are in Milwaukee for three games starting Friday night. Brewers righthander Matt Garza […]

    Brewers can’t get out of funk, lose 4-1

Milwaukee lost for the 8th time in its last 9 games on Wednesday night, 4-1 to Philadelphia. Phillies pitchers Roberto Hernandez and Jonathan Papelbon needed only a combined 93 pitches against a Brewers lineup missing Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy.

    “He’s a kid that’s fought the odds:” Running becomes an outlet for boy who has been through a lot

    NASHOTAH (WITI) — A high school runner in cross country or track is trained to focus on the finish line — but for one area standout, where he started and what he acquired along the way are just as important. There are no shortcuts in running. Mike Harder and his Oconomowoc High School teammates know that to be at their best during the cross country and track seasons, they need to put in the work now. Harder, in particular, knows how […]

    Brewers run into trouble, lose to Phils, 3-2

    MILWAUKEE– The Brewers are still one of the top teams in the National League recordwise, but their recent play is not at the level of a division leader.   On Monday night, questionable baserunning helped lead to a 3-2 loss to the scuffling Phillies at Miller Park. All-Star outfielder Carlos  Gomez was picked off second base easily, shortstop Jean Segura inexplicably tried to go from first to third after getting a bad jump on Jeff Bianchi’s two-run pinch single and […]

    Ultra marathon swimmer hopes to create history in Milwaukee

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) – Marathons are quite common; in fact in 2013 in the state of Wisconsin alone, there were 350 organized marathon races…on foot.  Marathon swims however, are far less prevalent.  In the same year, according to openwaterswimming.com, there were only 12 organized marathon swims at a distance of 10-kilometers or more, in the entire world.   This summer the world will dive into the sport with ultra-marathon swimmer Jamie Patrick.  The California native plans to make history in Lake […]

    Strong start to second half of season, Brewers win, 3-2

    MILWAUKEE — The Brewers overcame a blown save to defeat the Rockies, 3-2 on Ryan Braun’s walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning Friday night.  The victory came in the 82nd game of the season and gave Milwaukee its 50th win of the year. Kyle  Lohse did not earn a decision, but lowered his earned run average by pitching 7 innings and allowing only 1 run.  Francisco Rodriguez allowed a game-tying home run to Josh Rutledge in the […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — On Thursday night, June 26th, college and international basketball standouts will realize a dream, when they are selected in the NBA Draft. Some of them feel they have had the best possible preparation. The Kohl Center in Madison can be a pretty hot place on the cold days and nights of the Big Ten basketball schedule.

    No offense, but Brewers lose quietly, 3-zip

    MILWAUKEE — The Brewers rolled into Miller Park on Monday night after an eye-popping 6 and 1 road trip.  However, they went down quietly to the Washington Nationals, 3-0.  Milwaukee could only muster 3 hits all night in dropping the opener of a seven game homestand. Gio Gonzalez handcuffed all of the Brewers, including Carlos Gomez.  The outfielder’s hitting streak ended after 18 games and his reaching base safely run is over after 35 straight contests. There was some good […]
