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!

    No confusion this year: Head Coach Paul Chryst names Joel Stave starting quarterback for Badgers

    MADISON (WITI) — Last year at this time, it was anybody’s ballgame when it came to who would be the Wisconsin Badgers starting quarterback. The process dragged on for months. This year, there’s a new head coach and the starter is entrenched. Joel Stave couldn’t be more pleased. It seems like just yesterday that Joel Stave was an All-State quarterback at Whitnall High School. The Greenfield native went on to play for the Wisconsin Badgers. A civil engineering major, he […]

    WHITEFISH BAY (WITI) — Opponents of the Whitefish Bay Dominican girls soccer team are often in for “double trouble!” Because they are rivals, Mary and Abby Mansker might not seem to like each other — but that couldn’t be further from the truth! “It means a lot to play for your high school, but I kind of think about how close my team’s gotten, and just like the relationships that I’ve formed and I will just kind of build forward […]

    KENOSHA (WITI) — For most high school football players, their playing days end after high school. A few may play in college — but only a very select few will hear their name called at the NFL Draft. Last Thursday night, April 30th in Chicago, Trae Waynes and Melvin Gordon, close friends and former teammates at Kenosha Bradford High School were among the chosen few. Waynes, the swift, silky smooth cornerback from Michigan State went to the Minnesota Vikings with […]

    He was set to start at QB, but Badgers Tanner McEvoy has unique opportunity to play at offense & defense

    MADISON (WITI) — When he arrived in Madison almost two years ago, Tanner McEvoy was set on starting at quarterback for the Wisconsin Badgers — a job he yearned to begin last season. But under the new coaching staff, McEvoy has turned into the football team’s version of a do-it-all MacGuyver! “Not a lot of kids get the opportunity to play both ways, so I need to take advantage of it and show them that I can do it,” McEvoy […]

    “Addiction touches everyone:” Rebound program uses basketball to help those battling addiction

    MILWAUKEE/WAUKESHA (WITI) — You may have heard an athlete or a fan say that he or she is “addicted” to sports, but there’s a group of men using basketball to help them battle real addictions. There’s nothing like a bunch of guys working up a sweat playing basketball. There’s nothing at stake really, other than just having a good time. But in reality, what one group is doing is helping to save lives. In some cases — their own lives. […]

    Long-time wrestling fan remembered at Waukesha event

    WAUKESHA (WITI) — A couple of years ago, FOX6 News shared a story about a local wrestling fan. Shawn Weber was even tougher than the athletes competing in Frank DeFalco’s Brew City Wrestling events. The Webz, as he was affectionately known, was honored at one of Frank’s competitions in 2013. His favorite wrestler, John Ceena, had a saying Shawn lived by — never give up. He never did — even through a heart transplant. However, the young man with a […]

    “He got to share this with me for 10 years:” Mark Attanasio emotional on first Opening Day without his father

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Mark Attanasio has been the right owner at the right time for the Milwaukee Brewers. One of the keys to his popularity is that he’s just a regular guy who happens to be successful and wealthy. There are many sides to Attanasio. There was the emotional one following last season’s historic collapse which catapulted his team out of the playoffs, the analytical side that led to the return of Brewers Manager Ron Roenickie and keeping the team […]

    “I worked hard:” Bucks legend Sidney Moncrief helping student-athletes gain victory in life

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Bucks’ future looks bright, but before most of the current players were even born, winning was a tradition. No player epitomized that more than Sidney Moncrief, who’s still scoring some of the biggest points of his life. The Milwaukee Bucks upset all the so-called experts by becoming just the 10th team in history to go from the league’s worst record — a franchise low 15 wins last year — to making the playoffs this season.

    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 […]
