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.

    An institution in Milwaukee: Circuit Baseball, Circuit Softball programs improve kids’ skills and character

    MILWAUKEE — Baseball is a sport of failure. Even top Major League batters fail seven out of 10 times, but a program in Milwaukee has taught kids how to succeed, rather than fail when it comes to what they get out of playing. A life-long educator, Bob Heinkel knows a good teaching moment when he sees one. “This is my master’s thesis that I started 30 years ago out of a need for learning and building up kids rather than […]

    Brewers new manager Craig Counsell seeks different vibe: “We’re going to try to be better teammates”

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — For  many years, the Boston Red Sox were described as 25 guys, 25 cabs. In other words, each guy did his own thing and there was no teamwork in place. Perhaps not coincidentally, those Red Sox teams didn’t win. The new Milwaukee Brewers manager is seeking a different vibe in Milwaukee. Craig Counsell had a lot of things on his to-do list when he took over as manager of the Brewers, including an often-overlooked idea. “We’re going […]
