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.

    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 […]

    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.

Professional football coaches wear NFL issued casual clothes on the sidelines, NBA coaches do their thing in nice suits.

    GRAFTON — When the legendary Kip Cramer was running the show back in the 1980s and 90s, Grafton was a perennial high school football power — winning a pair of state championships. For most of the past 20 years, it has been a perennial struggle for the Blackhawks.
