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.

    “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 […]

    Can you spell the last name of Marquette’s basketball coach? That’s okay, neither can the players

    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? Give it a try, watch the video above — and then scroll down for the correct spelling. . . . . . . . . . It is spelled… WOJCIECHOWSKI

    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 […]

    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, […]
