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!

    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 […]

    A baseball institution: Bob Uecker excited for his 45th season as the voice of the Milwaukee Brewers

    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 […]

    What happened? Dontrelle Willis started his baseball career on top; now, he’s a long-shot to make Brewers roster

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Dontrelle Willis started his Major League career like he was heading for Cooperstown, New York, and the Baseball Hall of Fame. Now, he’s a long-shot to make the Brewers roster. Either way, he’s making a lasting impression. “I’m kinda the glass is half full guy,” Willis said. The glass was filled to the top when Willis burst onto the scene with the Florida Marlins in 2003 — winning National League Rookie of the Year honors and helping […]

    PHOENIX (WITI) — The Milwaukee Brewers baseball season is right around the corner, and there’s a big guy in Milwaukee’s bullpen who will carry a big load in his first season with the team. “I mean, it’s like a brotherly love over there with the other team because you come through Spring Training, you work so hard every day and…but you also have to look at it like a business move too,” Brewers reliever Jonathan Broxton said. The human side […]

    BROWN DEER (WITI ) — It’s a sport that features elements of soccer, hockey and basketball — and the latter is often played above the rim. It is a game that’s difficult to compare to any other! In this sport, all the action is underwater! “Underwater hockey is a sport that you play on the bottom of the pool. You play with about a one-foot long stick and a three-pound puck and you push it into the goal. There’s a […]

    MEQUON (WITI) — You may have, at one point, seen a parent get a little too excited at his son or daughter’s high school basketball game — but what if you’re a father who played the game at a high level? How do you balance being a parent and a coach? “That bond between father and son — being able to talk about things, being able to talk about the basketball and the respect that they have for each other, […]

    Rick Majerus: Beloved man & coach who loved giving back – so that’s what those who loved him did in his honor

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The late Rick Majerus became a coaching legend who once said he had more money than he could ever spend in a lifetime, but fame and fortunate didn’t define the man. Giving back did, which is why he was still giving back and probably smiling last week. Majerus had an incredible sense of humor. He loved to crack people up — especially at his expense. The Milwaukee native also had a big heart, so it was fitting […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Bucks have had a remarkable season so far. They have 30 wins at the All-Star break, compared with just 15 for the entire season last year. These Bucks want to own the present as well as the future, which is why they made a surprise move on Thursday, February 19th — trading point guard Brandon Knight. “It’s never personal.
