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.

    “I’ve had a lot of challenges:” Halli Stewart has overcome to become a Tillman Scholar, honored at Lambeau

    GREEN BAY — A local woman is putting a little twist on an old saying. With her, it’s “do as I say AND do as I do.” Her example is worthy of attention. There are roughly 80,000 stories at Lambeau Field each time the Green Bay Packers play a home game. Halli Stewart’s is a pretty compelling one. In January, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which led to six months of chemotherapy and a double mastectomy before she returned […]

    MILWAUKEE — The college basketball season is about to tip off, and one Marquette University player feels right at home, even though he’s a long way from home. In recent seasons, Trent Lockett and Matt Carlino have played big roles at Marquette as graduate transfers. The experience they brought to the program was evident. Now, former UNLV and USC guard Katin Reinhardt gets his chance. “I think the biggest thing coming in here was, I am only here for a year. […]

    “Pretty exciting:” UWM athlete Cody Wichmann prepares for his future after basketball

    MILWAUKEE — There’s a college basketball player at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee who hopes to score as big on the court this season as he already has off the court. Sometimes it all kind of hits Cody Wichmann. “I am kind of the veteran around here. It’s kind of weird to say,” said Wichmann. It’s weird because Wichmann said he feels like he was a freshman just a blink ago, and it’s also weird because so many of the guys […]

    WAUKESHA — There aren’t many high schoolers who can sum themselves up as accurately as Austin Peters. “I just love doing sports. I love being busy,” Peters said. Peters is a freshman on the Waukesha North Cross Country varsity team. He is also a freshman on the Waukesha North football varsity team. And yes, those are both fall sports. I just have fun doing them both. Running always came naturally to me. I have always loved doing long distance. It’s just […]

    “A lot of pride over there:” 2 Bucks hopefuls made 7,000-mile trek for a chance to play for Milwaukee

    MILWAUKEE — As unlikely as it may sound, the Milwaukee Bucks seem to be fostering a basketball connection with China. To call Michael Beasley well-traveled would be an understatement. The Milwaukee Bucks are his latest NBA stop. Two years ago, he was playing for the Shanghai Sharks in China, and loving it. “I was in Shanghai, so I was in a big city. It wasn’t really China. Shanghai is like, a dope city. It’s awesome,” Beasley said. But it’s not […]

    Bye week came early for the Green Bay Packers — but that might not be such a bad thing

    GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers are “by the bye.” Each team in the NFL gets a week off during the regular season and it came very early for the Packers this year — Week 4. But that might not be such a bad thing. The Packers had multiple players sidelined by injury for their last game before the break vs. the Lions — the Packers regular season home opener at Lambeau Field. All but two of them were […]

    “It’s a lot of fun:” Brewers’ Tim Dillard’s videos, movie spoofs, Harry Caray impressions make him anything but ordinary

    MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Brewers are winding up a rebuilding season, which has fans paying attention to the prospects in the Minor Leagues who may someday become contributors on the field at the Major League level — but one Brewers Minor Leaguer is already a prime-time player in his own unique way. A Milwaukee Brewers player for parts of four seasons, Tim Dillard had nondescript career pitching statistics, yet his Harry Caray impressions made him anything but ordinary. The right-hander hasn’t been in […]

    Royals bullpen coach, former Brewer Doug Henry reflects on remarkable MLB career: “Doesn’t get any better than this”

    MILWAUKEE — When the Major League Baseball season ends in a couple of weeks, most of the Milwaukee Brewers players would move away to their off-season homes. But when the World Series champions end their season, one of their coaches will come back to the Milwaukee area. Professional football coaches wear NFL issued casual clothes on the sidelines, NBA coaches do their thing in nice suits. Only in baseball, do the manager and coaches wear the same uniforms as the […]
