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!

    Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith says “I had an absolute blast” in first season, looking forward to second

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Will Smith’s given name is a good fit because he has the “will” to win, the “will” to work hard, and the “will” to make two people who shaped his Major League career proud. “I like to be outside a lot, so to be able to go play golf, you spend most of the day outside. I’m a competitive person, so it’s nice to get out there and compete against something that’s not […]

    MADISON/INDIANAPOLIS (WITI) — We’re four days away from the Wisconsin Badgers big matchup with the Kentucky Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four — and just one day away from the Badgers send-off pep rally at the Kohl Center in Madison. The Wisconsin Badgers will be all business when they play Kentucky Saturday evening at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, but this is a team that knows how to have fun and stay loose off the court. The Badgers men’s […]

    After ending up in Milwaukee by trade, Brewers first-baseman Adam Lind says: “Hopefully I’m an answer”

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Who’s on first? The Milwaukee Brewers have had too many to count over the past few years, but they hope a man who speaks softly will swing a big stick this season. “I like the culture they try to promote with the team meetings we have each morning — try to get to know each other session. That’s definitely brand new to me. I enjoy that,” Adam Lind said. “Brewers Nation” will enjoy Adam Lind, whom the […]

    “The goal is always to move forward:” Brewers Ryan Braun hopes to return to All-Star form this season

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Brewers hope for a thumbs up — or perhaps a right thumb up from outfielder Ryan Braun. Never has one digit meant so much to the fortunes of a Major League baseball team. Like his Brewers teammates, Ryan Braun had a forgettable 2014. Then again, it’s tough to forget their epic collapse from first place for 150 days to watching the post-season. Had Braun been healthy instead of swinging with one hand because of his […]

    On the mound or on the mountain, Milwaukee Brewers Tyler Thornburg is scaling to the top

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg might start the season in the minors because he’s versatile enough to bounce up and down and pitch in any spot he’s needed. Not making the roster would disappoint him, but Thornburg won’t let it keep him down for long. After winning a spot in the Brewers bullpen out of spring training last year, Tyler Thornburg was a master on the mound. He only gave up one earned run in his first […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Bob Uecker is a baseball institution and a national treasure, but home is where his heart is. That’s why he’s been with the Milwaukee Brewers for going on five decades. Bob Uecker is a Milwaukee Brewers icon. He doesn’t look 81 years young, and he doesn’t act it either. No matter what he’s done, he’s had fun — mostly at his own expense. As Uecker enters his 45th season as the voice of his hometown team, he […]

    Former National Muscular Dystrophy Association Goodwill Ambassador Mike Neufeldt has passed away

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Some sad news about a man many FOX6 viewers got to know: former National Muscular Dystrophy Association Goodwill Ambassador Mike Neufeldt has passed away. Neufeldt battled muscular dystrophy, and on Tuesday, March 17th, his heart gave out. But that heart touched more lives both in and out of the sports world than anyone can imagine. Neufeldt served as the MDA National Goodwill Ambassador in 1987 and 1988. He called those two years the best of his life. He […]

    “It’s too busy:” Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke says when Spring Training is over, his life gets a bit simpler

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — There is no pressure for baseball teams to win in Spring Training, but the manager always has to be on his toes. Spring Training is underway at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix, Arizona. Brewers players and coaches report to the complex bright and early — often as early as 6:30 a.m. They are available to the media in the clubhouse from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., and then comes practice which leads into the exhibition game which […]

    Heroin addiction considered “an epidemic,” and anyone can be impacted, even student-athletes

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Heroin addiction has become an epidemic across the country, including here in Wisconsin. It has invaded our schools — not only in the city, but in the suburbs. A man whose addiction began when he was in high school in southeastern Wisconsin is trying desperately to break free from heroin’s grip, and he’s not the only one. “It’s definitely not a myth. It’s actually very popular. Athletes are doing pills and other drugs,” the man said. He’s […]
