I have been as blessed in my work as anyone I know; because I have been fortunate to do what I love for close to 35 years, and to do it in Milwaukee.

As a self-described “frustrated athlete who loves people”, I’ve been able to couple my passion for sports with a desire to meet men and women who have a gift to share, and, often times, a compelling story.

Having the chance to share those local stories has become as meaningful as anything I’ve been able to do-whether covering a Brewers World Series (yes, I’m old enough to have been there in 1982), or a Super Bowl, or a Rose Bowl, or a Final Four.

Over 27 years ago, I came to town to continue my sportscasting career.

At the time, I was told that Wisconsinites are wonderful folks, hard-working, honest-the kind of people you can’t fool.

It’s been a real honor to try and earn your trust for over 27 years-the past 24 at FOX 6.

I’m a Syracuse, New York native, but Milwaukee has become HOME. I love the parks, the walking and biking paths, the restaurants, getting to meet as many of you as possible.

I’m thankful that my son and daughter (ages 15 and 11), the pride and joy of my life, were born and bred here.

I never did become a Brett Favre, or a Robin Yount, or a Dwayne Wade, but I’m truly thankful for and humbled by trying to do what I do for all of you.

I wouldn’t trade it, although, I saw a pair of Gucci shoes that D. Wade had on; they were SWEET!
